Like any fused art quilt, the improvised vignette quilt, Spring Blooms #4, is steam set to the batting before hand stitching. An even set of Blanket Stitches surround the blue flowers (the focal point) which are topped with a healthy dose of French Knots. (I’m using a Size 8 Pearl Cotton Thread with a Size 4 embroidery needle.) The Red Hots thread colorway repeats the same color spicy red in the wallpaper stripe.
I must admit, hand embroidery really makes the quilt!
