I love working with silks! The inspiration for this project—a beautiful spiral pillow from Linda Wenturine’s Pillow Panache Trio—is on the BERNINA of America website (www.berninausa.com). I made two small changes to the spirals to completely change the look of the finished project.
I just finished a cute and trendy wallhanging featuring embroidery designs from OESD’s “Stitch ‘n Bloom” Crafters Collection #20001. The designs begin to bloom stitch-by-stitch and, as they build, truly look like they were sewn by hand using embroidery floss – in a fraction of the time.
Here’s a peek at some of the projects I’ve been stitching with the new embroidery collections, Bold & Beautiful and Stitches ‘n Bloom. Both are beautiful as well as versatile. Look for them at your local BERNINA dealership.
Boy, did I have fun creating this pillow using the three-dimensional designs in OESD’s Chrysanthemum Premier Collection #017! Parts of the design are heavily stitched, and when the embroidery is complete you simply cut through the stitches with a very sharp knife to make them “bloom.”
