Plain and Simple: Flowers, Block A
This block went really quickly after taking too long to choose colors and fabrics. I went back and forth about the background--light or medium, print or not. I lightly printed background would have been fine because of the plainness of the block. I'll be thinking about that as I choose fabrics for the next block.
I switched out the fabric for the vase from the one I originally chose. You can see the other fabric for the vase here. I liked it, especially the colors, but when realized it was a batik I know I couldn't like stitching through such tightly-woven fabric.
These are photos of the fabrics I used. There's nothing like close-up photos to see what my old eyes miss. Stray threads, not-quite-tight stitches, etc....
The pattern called these blue tulips but I've never seen blue tulips so stitched red ones. The leaves aren't quite tulip leaves, either, but I used them anyway.
Ready for Block B. Maybe I'll start it today.
