This flower went together very nicely. I remembered to pin the fabric to the template so the basting didn't slide and get off center.
I've been still working at cutting out the last "kit" for the Retreat, but I think I hit a snag there too. I don't have enough of one of my fabrics. One of the pieces is only 42 inches wide, not 44, so it has thrown off all the cutting. I'm really thinking I won't have enough. :-( I'm going to head to the fabric store tomorrow and pick out another color to finish the sashing. All the 1.5 inch strips and cuts will go in the 1.5 inch box of strips.
