Color-Washed Florals

Embroidery Collection


Hoop size: 4” x 4”

Color-washing in the world of paint typically involves using paint that has been thinned out with a glaze to create a subtle hue of color on furniture, walls, and other items. We took this idea of gentle coloration and put it towards
this embroidery collection. Each design features a bean stitched floral motif with colored elements lightly stitched underneath. The colorful shading won’t necessarily stay inside the lines of the motif, varying in density to give the appropriate color-washed effect.

We selected some fun, floral-inspired shades of Madeira’s Frosted Matte embroidery threads for these designs. This collection would be great merged onto the blank block for a 4x4 quilt, so we’ve alternated the base fabric to create a checkerboard style quilt. Since these embroidery designs won’t come joined to the quilt block file, you can use them to embellish anything, such as a backpack, zippered bag, or a garment!
