Friday Flower Sparaxis
My mum sent me some photos of her sparaxis from her garden so I just had to make one in my block series. The colors are so vivid. She has two different sparaxis, a pink and an orange. I chose to make the orange color.
The flowers are made up of four main parts (although the three at the back of the block do have an extra piece as well). The four main sections are all different colors, orange, red, black and yellow. I press the sections together first before adding them to the background.
I added black stitch to define the yellow sections better as you can see in these before and after shots.
It makes quite a difference adding that stitching!
The whole flower looks like this...
... and the completed block finished up like this.
