Flower appliques come in a myriad shapes and colors, but not many constitute an integral portion of the project, yet still look like appliques. Both these rose and tulip flower stitches are just that, they are a stitch that forms a portion of the work in question, be it a sweater or a blanket, or whatever, but are built right in, meaning they will never come off, form a repeating motif in the work and are easy to make as the project is worked up, rather than afterwards as a separate item.
