I'm now working on my last piece, chili peppers. I started with the green stems, then went on to the darker shadowed portions of the chili.
The difficult part of these is that they are so thin, it will be difficult to convey a 3-D effect or to trapunto them. So I tried to sew both in the long/horizontal direction and also around the width of each chili, to convey the roundness of each.

Now I just need to do the background and then I'll be on to putting all 9 of my Salsa blocks together!
