I found this stitch in Crazy Quilt Stitches by Dorothy Bond, on page 75 is the Rosette stitch, then on page 78 is a web like motif with the rosette at the points. I wanted something round in this space so I made a circle with the web like stitches putting a rosette on each point, but it was lacking "pop". Under each rosette I put a set of lazy daisy leaves, still needing something I added french knots in the top set of diamond shapes and in the center. I really like how this came out and I keep going back to look at it.

The seam treatment is straight stitch in a V shape with 3 lazy daisy atop each point and french knots along the inside of the zigzag.

Another beautiful one. I will have to look that up and try it, too. Isn't it interesting how we see different things in the same book?
