This was an incredibly fun collection to both design and stitch out. We were inspired to create modern hand embroidery designs and the concept grew from there. Each of the blocks contains a central character surrounded by leaves, clouds, flowers and other whimsical objects. The art was beautiful on its own but really came to life with the stitching. All of the lines us a 7 or 9 ply stitch so they are very bold when stitched out. There are also dozens of motif stitches used for more dramatic flair. Depending on the colors you choose the designs can look modern or vintage, grown up or adolescent. There are also a few different transitional blocks included so that you can complete your project. These designs will make a great quilt or pillow!
