Every time I do a beautiful embroidered quilt for someone it reminds me that I really need to learn more about my embroidery machine. Right now all I’m using it for is embroidered labels and it is capable of so much more!
Take a look at this beauty Jennifer made. Don’t you love how the embroidered flowers grow up over the square in a square and break out of the boundaries of that block?
I had fun with a freehand feather fill behind each flower to add movement and an organic quality to the flowers.
I used a nice feather border design from One Song Needle Arts in the outside border. I can’t remember what it is called. The outside border corner stones are a scroll block that compliments the border design.
Gardening has never been my thing, though. Of course, this garden is more my style- no weeds, no dirt, and no hot sweaty manual labor.
Here are more of the flower blocks!
