Read more about Confederate Violets HERE.
This block has some elements that float in the block. Between the two primary stems is a small vase or vessel with a three leaf stemmed flower. It is very common in 19th century floral appliqué to see a very tiny vessel with sprouting what appears to be an oversized flower.
I started my block by basting every other base leaf in place.
Once I completed the needle turn appliqué on the, first leaves I basted the rest in place.
Hold off on the flower stems until the buds and calyx are stitched.
