Well, for now those seam treatments are finished. They may need some tweaking later.
This was tricky, as I did not want to take away any focus from the scenic image in the center of the block...but the frame had to be developed and interesting too.
So I went with all one color in the embroidery--blue, to bring out the sky--and I kept my stitches simple and traditional...this was also to add a nostalgic cast to an already very sentimental project.
Now I am left with the four corner triangles to construct. Lots of options here, all fun to explore!
