Birds in Bloom (Toile)


Monica was a big fan of the toile Birds in Bloom designs, and was longing for versions featuring cardinals and chickadees. We were happy to oblige! These light and airy toile designs feature the birds perching alongside beautiful flowers.
 
Available in four sizes:
6.88" x 8.56" and 6.25" x 7.78" and 5.38" x 6.69" and 4.85" x 6.05"


Because toile designs are light and airy with open spaces showing, stitch them on smooth, low-nap fabrics for best results (like quilter's cotton, linen, denim, and canvas).
     
 
Available in three sizes:
5.85" x 5.96" and 4.78" x 4.87"
3.78" x 3.85"

 7.80" x 2.54" and 6.00" x 2.19"


A pair of chickadees land amongst daisies in this elegant design. Chickadees are commonly associated with this type of flower thanks to the bird's love for daisies, and the pairing is often prevalent in artwork.
 
Available in four sizes:
6.88" x 8.75" and 6.12" x 7.78" and 5.38" x 6.84" and 4.85" x 6.16"

Carol requested more woodland circles like the Mallard Duck Scene and Great Horned Owl Scene, and our other wild bird scenes. Here, we've stitched a gorgeous woodland duck surrounded by traditional greenery -- add the whole group to a quilt or series of wall hangings!

These stunning woodland scenes are gorgeous additions to pillows and other embroidery projects. A light, blank fabric gives the embroidery design a beautiful place to shine.
 
     


The Steller's jay is native to western North America, and closely resembles the blue jay. Here, the beautiful bird relaxes alongside blooming flowers and pinecones between flights.
