Moving ahead almost 50 years (hey, I never said this blog would be chronological!) I wanted to show you a variety of ways to use a single machine embroidery design. This is a Zundt design, of course. I first used it on a dress from my Rose pattern, which I taught at a couple of Martha Pullen schools in 2011.
Then, switching to quilting, I used it (seventy-some times, I think) in Snow Flowers. You can see the design here between the rows of quilted flowers. It’s not a very good photo, the quilt isn’t finished, it’s white, not pink, but this is the best photo I have of the use of this design.
Here’s great photo, but you can only see a little of the scroll-y design.
Finally, I made a 17″ x 17″ miniature using this design yet again!
So the next time you look at embroidery designs, try to imagine all the ways they can be used!
