It's all in the details
Here is the next block in the BOM "Forget Me Not" by Esther Aliu. It is a Calla Lily. I selected the color after checking out various color options on the computer. What a great tool the computer is, all I had to do was Google Calla Lily and look at the images and voila. Who knew these flowers came in so many colors! If you look at this block in a previous post, you will see that it looks a little flat. It really didn't come to life until all the embroidered details were added and I even did a little extra shading inside the flowers with Prisma colored pencils. I wasn't sure about the color combination til the block was complete - this really is a case where the details make the block. I'm looking forward to prepping the next block this weekend.
