Motif # 8

Motif #8 Colorado Columbines

This is harder to tat than I thought! I used size 80 threads. The outer chain petals need to be tighter; but, of course nothing in nature is perfect. However, I'm not really satisfied with this effort. When I blocked the group it made the purple petals too pointy and the white petals are lost in the background. The yellow center on one looks orange in the scan. In my hand and laid out, they looked better than the scan results. It may have helped if I had ever seen an actual Colorado Columbine. LOL
