Last night I was able to stitch down the stem portion of Block Two. This morning I attached the center flower after rethinking one of the colors in the layers. Like it much better now. So this afternoon when the rains come back I will have something to work on as I watch some college football.
There are more leaves to be added and rosebuds at the tips of the stems.
I replaced the second from the outside piece with this brighter red faric that has a black design in it. My other choice blended into the bottom piece and looked washed out. The color scheme for this will most likely be civil war reds,greens and yellows. Hopefully this will become one of my Christmas quilts.
