Solstice Dream Hedgehog Blossom block

I finished the third block of the Solstice Dream quilt.

Solstice Dream block 3 hedgehog blossom

This block gave me a chance to learn a new stitch. The 3 marigold petals are stitched with the double Pekinese stitch. The double pekinese stitch looks complicated but really was quite easy to stitch. First, I stitched a backstitch around each marigold petal and then threaded another thread through the backstitches which gives the stitch a braid-like appearance.
