Buttonhole Stitch Floral Motif

I wanted to break up the rows of stitching on my sampler, so I cut a piece of felt, basted it down and used buttonhole stitches to appliqué it to my ticking background. I used buttonhole wheel stitches to embellish the felt flower shapes. The fern-like stems were done in my favorite variation of the fly stitch.
