Lesson 7 is about a stitching pattern called Flax Leaf. It is used to fill the shapes created from the division marking lines. It can be done with simple markings (first pictures) or complex (second picture is a C8). A pine needle design is stitched and then the ends of the pine needles are stitched to the outer shape.

As I have said in other posts, this level of certification requires me to write up 6 patterns.
And I have completed my fifth pattern; a C8 based upon a pattern done by a FB friend in the temari group I belong to. She did this for a family member and after she posted the pictures, someone else in the group asked about the pattern and there wasn't one so I wrote it up. The diagram took 3 tries in Adobe Illustrator so it looked correct and conveyed the correct information. Then the write up took 4 versions to edit it down to one page per the JTA requirements.
This pattern is called Stained Glass Roses.
This lesson covered (literally) all over designs. These two temari are the same patter but when stitched with different colors, they look very different. They are both marked as a C10 and then continuous starss are stitched around/over the pentagons.
