Red Hat Block Day 4

Red and Purple Block Day 4
Originally uploaded by Kitty And Me.
After looking at this block alot over the weekend, I decided that the seams need to be covered with cream colored things rather than red or purple. I started by adding daisies with some curly vines and beading them. Looking at it now, I think it needs one more daisy. I'll add that later before moving on to another area.

I put alot of thought into making my blocks look balanced. A good way to do that is to repeat things like the background fabrics, stitches, threads and beads. I will probably repeat the daisies on the other side of the hat but I'm planning to use some of my little daisy appliques. I have to get them out and see if they're white or cream. If they're white, I'll have to handpaint a few of them.
