|Esther's Original from the SVBAQ|
|There are a lot of small stem pieces in this block.|
You could embroider them.
I chose to appliqué mine - one piece at a time, adding the
final stem over the top.
|Basted, ready for needle turn|
|Top stem basted over finished small stems.|
I sometimes mix my basting thread colors.
|The bud shapes are interesting.|
I decided to keep mine like Esther's and
not redraw them.
