Friday Flower Geranium

I was doing a little research on geraniums before starting this block and found there are 422 species. It's no wonder they all look a little different. They are usually seen in warm colors and their leaves are very unique making them easy to identify. Mum took a couple of photos of her plants while they were flowering.

I made my block pink too.

The leaves are made in two parts. I used dark in the center although in some plants it is the opposite way around. I used my light box to align the two pieces and draw in the stitching lines.

The lightbox helps to align pieces together

When stitching around the edges I sometimes drag the thread across to the next part needing to be stitched, this speeds up the process because I don't need to stop and start all the time. Sometimes however, I don't always remember to snap off the threads before taking the photo. 

Remember to snip off those threads - one goes right across the pink flower

Easy to fix....

Here is my finished block with all the threads snipped off.
