This segment's strip is Perfect Peony by Bobbie Matela, who in addition to being a crochet designer also blogs regularly for Red Heart.

"Bobbie has chosen to use popcorn stitches to create a perfect little three-dimensional peony flower center on a granny square background, with colors of medium thyme perfect pink, orchid, and shocking pink. The colors of the background and center flower change in each motif, adding so much visual interest to the strip!"

Bobbie has taken care to explain how to make this strip perfectly match the length of the other strips, so be sure to pay careful attention to the assembly instructions! This pattern begins on page 11 of the Across the Board 2015 booklet.
