    Looks great to me. You picked a harder pattern for your first block! Can't wait to see more. Welcome to the board!

    Beautiful if you ask me. I didn't attempt one of those till I was 7 or 8 years into quilting, and trust me, didn't look that good.
    My stash keeps me in stitches!

    It looks good. What is your concern? There is usually a slight bit of pull-in on applique. If that is it, just cut the background block a little larger than you want and then trim to the finished size plus 1/2".

    Wow, for a first block you did an amazing job. That is a rather hard block to start with.
    Hi ho, Hi ho, it's off to sew I go!

    Looking good and the fabrics are great. It looks like it was made by a seasoned quilter to me.

    It looks great to me too. That's not an easy block for a "first". You are going to be a great Quilt maker!!

    It looks great, it's a harder block than I would recommend for a first block, but you did a great job and we can expect beautiful quilts from you.

    Wow, it's a gorgeous block. Love the different pinks. I have the little handprint fabric too! Can't wait to see the rest of your blocks. Welcome to the board. We're not too far apart!

    Looks great to me. This block is not the easiest block to make.

    I love your block and colors. I can't tell you if anything is wrong I've never seen your block what's it called? It looks good to me and I love the colors. Sue
