maybe this blue?

In the top photo, I'm trying out a darker blue for the flowers--still not as dark as the leaves and stems, but dark. The second photo is the same as in my previous post--flowers are a medium blue, but a little too grayed out for my taste.

A detail of the dark plus darker blues:

I will let this sit for a while. I think I'll still try to find another medium blue, but if I can't find something, I think this dark blue will work.

  1. Hi Penny, your applique is beautiful. The thing I like about the more medium blue is that it pulls some of the interior color out to the border, making it "lighter" in weight. I so admire you patience with that hand thing! jill
