OVERVIEW
In this stunning, color-illustrated collection of floral embroideries, the author of Redouté’s Finest Flowers in Embroidery introduces needleworkers to her unique long- and short-stitch “needlepainting” style of portraying flowers like a botanical painter. Five starter projects show novices how to create the illusion of brushwork in thread and use basic techniques, from preparing fabric and transferring designs to blocking and mounting. Sixteen easily achieved but challenging larger projects enable beginners and experts to bring to life meticulously detailed sunflowers, magnolias, bearded irises, an Icelandic poppy, roses, and more. With diagrams, full-size templates, and stitch directions included, this is a must-have for any embroiderer’s library.
