Stitch a stunning sampler of 11 pulled thread patterns!
On this Group Correspondence Course you will stitch this stunning White Iris using white or cream Pearl Cotton on matching 32-count Belfast linen. The mat chosen for behind and around the piece adds the punch of color.
Combining stunning June flowers, White Iris is a sampler of eleven pulled thread patterns worked inside surface embroidery of flowers petal edges. The surface embroidery emphasizes shaping the buttonhole stitch and the chain stitch to form leaves and petal edges. Chain stitch, outline stitch and satin stitch variations are used for flower stems. Some knowledge of compensation is essential in working the pulled thread patterns.
This beautiful composition, done in surface embroidery enclosing areas filled with pulled thread patterns, has a spectacular lace-like quality.
