Big Leaves by Christen Brown
This piece started with the large linen leaf print. I chose Valdani perle cotton for the embroidery stitches because of the ombre and variegated colors. The printed fabric gave me so many opportunities to use a variety of embroidery stitches.
You can find this piece in my book the Hand Embroidery Dictionary by C&T Publishing.
Happy Stitching, ~Christen
Your new book is on its way to me ,I cannot wait to get it. I love your leaf piece, I am an art quilter and use leaves in much of my work. I am looking forward to enhancing leaves in my new pieces with embroidery in the future. Thanks for sharing your great work.
I hope that you enjoy reading through the book, and exploring your stitching possibilities! Happy Stitching!
