State of Embroidery

Free Project Instructions!

For more than a century, birds and flowers have been chosen as emblems to represent a state's beauty and individuality. Enjoy a star-spangled series of designs this week, commemorating the 50 states, and Canada's provinces and territories too!

We've taken the state birds and flowers and blended them together into beautifully detailed and richly complex embroidery designs. From Alaska's willow ptarmigan to Florida's orange blossoms, each state has a design that is uniquely its own.

And, there's more! You'll also find light-and-lively redwork birds and flowers, applique state shapes and outlines, even the national anthem, ready to add stately beauty to your embroidery projects.

There are more than 1000 new designs this week -- too many to fit on one page. On this page you'll find the full-color state bird and flower medleys. Look for the tabs below to go to the redwork flowers, birds, and applique state shapes and outlines as well.

Sew and show your patriotic pride - enjoy the designs!

Kenny made a beautiful banner with the United States medley and national anthem designs. Let him inspire you with these free instructions!

Minnesota Loon and Ladyslipper

Embroidery Library was born and bred in Minnesota, and we begin our journey through the 50
states with our state emblems, the loon and showy ladyslipper. They're arranged together in a beautiful medley, with graceful movement of the flower stems contrasting with the loon's stillness.

Minnesota is the Land of 10,000 Lakes, and the unique call of the loons is heard most often
at dusk and dawn. Our state has 90,000 miles of shoreline, which is more than California, Florida, and Hawaii -- combined!

As you scroll down the page you'll find that the designs are available in four sizes.
In order to accommodate the 100 x 100 mm hoops, a different form of the design was
created. That's shown below, on the right. The larger three sizes of the medleys are
the full version, shown below, on the left.

Canada's Bird & Bloom Medleys

Canada consists of ten provinces and three territories, and each is represented by an official bird and flower. We celebrate Canada's beauty, and the upcoming holiday of Canada Day, with bird and flower medley designs!

Alberta's emblems are the wild rose and great horned owl. The province is named after Princess Louise Caroline Alberta, the fourth daughter of Queen Victoria. Alberta is diverse with mountains, forests, and prairie, and wildlife lovers will see buffalo, grizzly and black bears, coyotes, wolves, fox, lynx, and mountain lions.

British Columbia is represented by the Pacific dogwood and Steller's jay. It holds seven national parks, including Glacier National Park, Mount Revelstoke National Park, Pacific Rim National Park, and Yoho National Park. Much of British Columbia is still wild, so it has become a haven for deer, elk, moose, caribou, and bighorn sheep.
