Here's the second part of Clam Flower #7. If you look at the dark purple tulip shape below you can see that I went with a blanket stitch that was large and contrasted some with the flower piece. It allows both the flower and the stitching to sparkle. I chose to do this since the fabric was fairly plain, but just the color I wanted.
The back of the finished block.
And the block complete. After looking at it further I wish the two green I used for the leaves had slightly more contrast. But I still like it a lot.
I hope you get to quilt today!
