Kathleen’s WOOL APPLIQUE version of Bloomin Beauties – Block #24! You can find the pattern in Kim Schaefer’s Flower Festival book. Kathleen has used a heavy black flannel for her background. Kathleen has used Colour Complements threads.
Kathleen has chosen to keep her leaves very simple for this block. They are bordered with a very short buttonhole and veining is created with swirls in a patterned wool without a border.
The flower is bordered with chain stitch and the inner petals are bordered with stem stitch followed by the addition of French knots. The center are a series of loopy bullions.
I hope you have enjoyed Kathleen’s Bloomin Beauties. This is the final block. Stay tuned as I will be sharing the entire quilt.
