Forget Me Not, details

Forget Me Not
This is a block from Part 5 of my free 2012 Mystery BOM Forget Me Not

This block was a real pleasure to make
There's just something so joyous about a bunch of forget me nots. Of course, being so tiny and so many hundred being in a bunch, I have stylised the design into more of an interpretation! Being the namesake block of the quilt, I thought it was fitting that my plum bird make it into the design too.

I hope you love this block as much as I do

Select fabrics to compliment your background

I cut away my stem after stitching the inside shape and lines in,
it's so much easier this way

 the little forget me nots in a bright sky blue

 the plum bird
(well all my quilts have a bird in the design somewhere)

 tiny yellow centres
I think the forget me not centres are calling out for
embroidery knots or small beads
putting them in place with tweezers!
