Block 15 - after much deliberating I decided to add some embroidery - just felt there was a need for some definition on the more complex applique blocks - the ones with a layered look. The pictures of the original quilts (in the pattern pack) had what appears to be simple if not crude embroidery (maybe some inked details actually) and all in dark brown/black? So I thought it didn't need to be too sophisticated - which suits me fine as I am no embroiderer!
With the next block I photographed it before adding embroidery and then after - for comparison (hopefully you can see a difference!) ...

I've enjoyed seeing the impressive lists of "Projects planned for 2013" on other quilting blogs - Wow, so much inspiration there! must get sewing...
