|Happy Holidays! |
I love Scandinavian folk art and was inspired by this traditional Christmas Tree design. The background fabric is a mottled green Grunge from Moda Fabrics.
First the design is stitched with white Olympus sashiko thread, then double stitched on the inside of the design with light blue, red, gold, and light green Olympus sashiko thread. Double stitching enhances the colors and adds more visual effect.
Colonial knots are used for the flower stamens; they are easier to execute with heavy thread than French knots.
The panels does not come with thread so you can choose your own colors.
It would be a great center piece for a quilt, a wall hanging or for a pillow.
