D is for Daisy- Fourth Block- ABC BOW

I decided to go with D is for Daisy, as it is a nice pretty flower. I almost used the kitten picture instead as my cat is called Daisy, but decided against it as I plan on giving this quilt away at the end.

I alternated stem stitch and back stitch on the petals, so provide a wee bit of variety in the texture. 

I also did about a hundred French knots in the centre, they aren't my neatest, but they will have to do.

I did get an idea while I was sewing this to do D  is for Deer instead, as I almost live in a deer park, and it is rutting season, so I may stitch that up if I have a moment and we shall see which I prefer.

What do you think? Every ones letters on the ABC BOW are really pretty, I am awfully excited for all the finished quilts.
