In the center, I am going to fuse a vase of flowers and use jumbo rickrack for the stems, along with buttons for the center of the flowers. That will take care of the embellishment part of the challenge. For the stripe, I plan to use that in my sashing or perhaps in the background of the applique block.
I drew up a preliminary plan in EQ6 but have other things I need to get completed before I can spend more time on this project.
I also found time to put the sashing on some of the four-patch blocks but hubby called from work and wanted me to go to lunch with him so that took a chunk of time out of my day. Tomorrow the guild is making cool ties for the soldiers in Iraq so I will be busy again.
