This one was a challenge for two reasons, the frame I wanted to use has 10 ribs (most of the vintage frames I bought online have 8), and my friend Swati, The Purple Flower, gets migraines so this one needed to be a bit more opaque.
Why does the number of ribs matter? Only that my "everything must match" frame of mind thinks it looks better. I want a pattern I can evenly sew to the ribs. In this case, five petals.
Then I did a few mesh rounds to adjust the total stitch count to the number I needed to do a few rows of the edging I like so much from the Filigree Sunshield.
I love how the central flower "tops it off" so nicely, and echoes the larger flower and leaves.
Overall, I think it worked rather well, what say you?
