Brunnera Flower Block
Brunnera is a flower in the Boraginaceae family or more commonly known Forget-me-not family. As with most flowers, there are many species of Brunnera. The best known is Siberian bugloss. Its interesting heart-shaped leaves grabbed my attention so I decided to make a new flower block.
I started out thinking about the 2-tone leaves and how I would create that effect. I practiced a leaf by cutting out two heart shapes, a lighter smaller one to place on top of the darker one.
Then I used free-motion stitching with a green thread to match the darker fabric to add detail to the leaf. The nice thing about this, if you go a little crooked, no one would know!
I made several leaves to create my flower block, then cut out tiny blue flowers to add at the top, adding stems first. I also scattered a few of the flowers around to balance the block.
