Embroidered Elegance 1
24” x 29”
2008

This small piece is Joanie’s first real attempt at using my embroidery equipment. The layout for the quilt and the floral designs were drawn in Adobe Illustrator. Next, they were imported into Creative DRAWings, software that assigned stitches to vector artwork and tells an embroidery machine how the designs should be stitched.

The piece has four embroidered appliqué panels that create the oval shape surrounding the main embroidery. Joanie used hand guided machine quilting to repeat the identical leaf designs on the outer border. The incredibly vibrant fabric is “Radiance” a silk/cotton blend by Robert Kaufman, the batting is Wool by Hobbs and threads are by Superior and YLI.
