A too precise satin stitch is unrealistic and is too perfect for a natural appearance in this case.
I ❤ embroidered & beaded applique . . . TEA Block Number 2- I got carried away with beads AGAIN for the centers of my lazy daisies!!! Now doing a wall hanging instead of a quilt. With all my embellishments, my puppy would be in heaven digging! I plan to make smaller blocks next with different teacups.
