You can't see much, but here's the back. I'm glad I chose to outline these pieces in white instead of black. I think black would've taken away from the white waves.
Here's layer number two! I fussy cut the petals at the bottom and the light purple clamshell in the middle. I love to fussy cut geometric prints. It's such a blast.
If you look carefully at the dark purple piece on the top part of this flower you can see that I switched the size of the blanket stitching on the inside and the outside of the piece. I used a larger size on the outside to emphasize the shape and a smaller size on the inside because I didn't want to take away from the fussy cut clamshell piece underneath.
Look at that dot! I was debating what to put in the center of this flower when I realized that this motif was the exact right size to go in the center. I was glad to have some extra black fabric around the edge though so that when I did my blanket stitching it didn't cut into the pattern at all.
And the back! All done!
I hope you get to quilt today!
