This month, I've chosen the Morning Glory block for my dark background version of this quilt.
Each month I have to select one for my yellow background and one for my dark background; I thought this would be a hard choice to face each month, but I'm finding that the flowers really choose themselves.
Depending on your own background, you might opt for light blue down into deep purples for your own Morning Glory block.
..turn edge flower heads using Floriani..
Like my previous blocks, I will also be embellishing the flower head with stitches to add texture and I've penciled in some shading and heat set it with an iron to make it permanent.
Again, I'm using Floriani stitch and wash fusible...
To create leaf texture for the veins, I stitched in "reverse"; which just means that I put thicker thread in the bobbin and stitched on the wrong side of the fabric to develop the stitches on the right side of the fabric.

I've double stitched these vein lines
