Hexagon Centres: Inside out wheel flowers
In between updates on the progress of the long rows of my hexagon quilt, I will put together a few of the hexagons centre embroidery motifs I have added. The embroidered centres are a little treat to keep me going on the long journey to join the hexagons.
The hexagon centres in this post are embroidered with variations of Mary Corbet's inside out button-hole wheel flowers. I have not added her inside row of buttonhole stitch in these examples.
Again, I like the flexibility of this stitch. It allows for considerable colour variation and also adds texture without bulk or likelihood of catching. It is very relaxing and a lot of fun to match the colours and variations to the fabric.
