this block was pretty easy, and even with that i got things turned around. oh well. it still looks pretty good.
i wasn't happy with this block, so i picked out the top of the small petal and inserted another fabric under it and made a double petal. i didn't like the stem so i made another one, i added an extra leaf, and i added some embroidery. somehow i put the buds in the wrong spot and that through off the balance of the entire flower. i really shouldn't be sewing late at night, evidently. anyway, while i was trimming these today, this was the one that stood out like a sore thumb.
not a perfect fix, wild roses don't have this many petals, but it works well enough for me.

Gini, another beauty
Gini, that is a beautiful block.
Your fabrics are great. Beautiful flower, Gini.
How Purty, Gini!!!
I think it looks really good. I tend to get things turned the wrong way too. I think I am dyslexic...LOL
Another beauty. Love the little check in the stem and that fabric on the calics is perfect.
It's beautiful Gini. I love the way you combine your fabrics and your lack of visible stitching is amazing.
I made my first attempt at applique on this block. I'm almost embarrased over it, but it was fun still. I had some issues with not leaving enough seam allowance to turn under and realized that I need to use my magnifier lamp when I do these. I didn't use it for the greens, and did for the petals. Big difference, huh? Anyway, here it is ....It will be fun to do more and look back.
Stephanie, that is just beautiful. Don't put your work down. Enjoy its beauty.

Thank you Emily and Gini.

It is, and thank you. I kind of had this vision of flowers pressed on a love letter when I saw the patterns.
