Amazing, I found this flower in an old book: Western Wild Flowers. It fits the Sketch Book Project perfectly for my theme. I embroidered the flower before I read the color. The blossom is supposed to be yellow and it is only one and a half inches across but with a very long stiff stem. This is a Blanket Flower or Gaillardia pinnatifida and fits my theme perfectly. Now if I can only find a jacket flower or a sheet flower I will read about them before I embroider them.
