        You have done a beautiful job! Love everything about this. If you’re looking to go further, consider continuing the leaf branches into the border. Also, add some simple outline circles in the border in white, maybe partial circles that stop at the center piece. Well done, Helen! My circle sampler is at the framer, who is having a hard time getting the frame I choice due to supply chain issues. Doesn’t the world know we have projects we want completed! Finished landscaping another house today. Two more to go!

        Carole B. Thank you. Our minds must run on the same frequency. I had made up a couple leaf branches templates to have coming out
        from the corners with the idea of putting a circle in the two corners with the branches coming out in a mirror image on both sides of the circle. I went ahead and put a sleeve and binding on it, but did
        not hand stitch the sleeve down yet. I think it would look good. Don't know how hard it would be to embroidery on an already
        quilted area. I think I am just anxious to get back to working on the BOM. Your comments confirmed my natural tendency to
        put thing in the borders that are in the main section, to help your eyes move around the piece. Be sure to post a picture of
        you framed embroidery when you get it back from the framer. HelenW

            I think I’m almost done. It’s been fun. Thank Alex for all your classes!

              Outside rings of circles are done, maybe. Now to begin working on filling the insides. This is fun! Thank you Alex! Oh, I also love red, the red in the photo is the painting above the sofa, my granddaughter painted it as part of her final exhibit for her Studio Art degree at Virginia Tech.

                  Sadly, I think I'm just about done. I've been enjoying this so much, bringing back memories of embroidering with my mom and granny so many years ago. And I've never just done anything so free-wheeling. Love doing this and will keep doing more. Thanks for the change of pace!

                      Hi Alex, I went into my silk stash and found this old crazy quilt block so decided to use it instead of making a new one for embroidery class.
                      I've had surgery on my ankle and am non weight bearing so cant get around much so this has been the perfect thing for me to work on.
                      Love the class. I'm calling it modern twist on something old.
