A customer has done several of these bold 10″ square blooms by Leigh and we just had this Gardenia done as a special. Keeping with the others I pulled Silk n Ivory with some Stardust and Snow for a little spark. Metallics are so difficult to photograph without being right on top of them. In the last picture the very whitest thread is 100% wool Blossoms from Gumnut. Its so white compared to the white silk n ivory so I thought it might be nice just to have the contrast in texture but in the end we kept it to all Silk n Ivory. (Short strands and Jeanne has no complaints with pilling).
