Spring Blossoms

The Story

It was a cloudy spring morning a few years ago. I was really into my camera at that stage, seeing interesting images in everything from old discarded shoes to sweet potato peels. But on that morning I didn't have to look very far to find beauty. It was everywhere. A crabapple tree in full bloom, prunus blossoms like we used to have in the garden when I was a kid and even flowering quinces. I had a field day trying to capture the essence of spring and eventually digitized some of my favourite pictures.

Fast forward a few years... In my studio, playing with fabrics, combining Kaffe Fassett, Phillip Jacobs, Alexander Henry, Williamsburg Botanicals by Windham Fabrics, and a beautiful cherry blossom print by Robert Kaufman. By then I was fired up, adding batiks, hand dyes from Amafu, French reproduction prints and even some of my machine embroidery samples. It had to become a quilt! I used the embroidered quince blossom as a reference and started piecing the center. Eventually this quilt became a study in scale and technique, giving the viewer something interesting to look at from far away as well as close up.

To get the greatest joy out of this embroidery collection:

  1. Don't resize. Stitch by stitch digitizing confuses resizing software. If you try and resize, it will either drop stitches or make the design far too dense or mix up the stitches where it shouldn't.
  2. Try to get the exact thread colors. It will give your embroidered blossoms that freshly picked feeling!
