Cool Block Victoria

I don't have a lot of experience making paper-pieced quilt blocks, other than string blocks, so this block through me for a loop. I just couldn't wrap my head around which color fabric to lay down first. But I got the hang of it.
Here's a couple things I learned when making this Christmas Flower:
-trust your first instincts.
-don't tear the paper off until you have cut out the block.
-afternoon coffee helps me focus.
-go outside your comfort zone - you might learn something cool!
I hope you like my contribution to your Christmas quilt, Victoria, cuz this is a cool block!
