Special Request of the Week

Embroidery Library is always inspired by your design suggestions, and we thank you for sending us your terrific ideas, which we regularly incorporate into the weekly design themes. This space is dedicated to the "Request of the Week."

Helen requested flowers in the popular Fluttering Filigree style. She especially wanted a rose, but wondered if maybe three different flowers in this style would be possible. So designs with flowing filigree highlight a blooming rose, along with cheerful chrysanthemums, and a delicate lily. Light enough to stitch onto tea towels and flour sack towels, and pretty enough to highlight on a pillow cover or table runner. Thank you, Helen, for this excellent design suggestion!
