Marjoram is a very old herb that is not used much lately. But I loved the shape of the leaves.
The dill leaves are really accurate, I think. Reminds me of the plants in my sister's garden. The flowers are a bit light, though. I think I may take those out and use a darker shade of yellow.The chives are fun. The blooms are as I remember them from my own gardening days. The variegated green thread is a bit light in this block, but I think I will leave it. What do you think? I started the word in the Parsley block, then remembered I wanted to change colors for the word. I will have to go back and take out the loop on the "P" and change it to blue at some point, I think. But I love the shape of the leaves. I just started on the Sage block, and it is a real challenge.
I chose the striped background to go with a very pale delicate victorian floral in shades of rust and gray greens. It goes perfectly with the accompanying fabrics and has that vintage look I love so much. I have been using Weeks Dye Works Over Dyed Fibers for the thread, and it is lovely with its slightly variegated colors. I only have 8 herb designs and I need 12 for the quilt, so I bought a book of herb drawings from Dover books and will make 4 more myself, duplicating the script style woven into the pictures. I'll post pictures of my four additional herb drawings when I get them complete.
