The 68th block of The Splendid Sampler™ is designed by Pat Sloan and called “Wild Roses”. Truth to be told, this block came to life when I started stitching the blanket stitch with the variegated pink floss. It alone makes so much difference! I like the subtle appearance it gives to the flower… I’m not so sure about the flower centre, though… perhaps a darker grey would have worked better. I guess I shall see when putting the blocks together.
Anyway, pattern, info and link party full of flowers are here.
