Laura’s Aztec Lilies

From Laura:

Good morning.  Hope all is well.  Here is a pic of my latest , finished embroidery,  your design 1780, Large bouquet featuring an Aztec Lily.  Although I have done many of your large designs, for some reason, known as “User Error”, I had some problems with placement on this design.  Once one part of the design is off, all can be off.  So I’m sending this picture as proof there is magic in fabric markers!  What didn’t match up, I colored in with markers as close to the embroidery thread color as possible, and ta-da, if I didn’t tell you there had been issues, you would never know.

Also, what is hard to tell in the picture, is the background fabric is a linen blend with a metallic thread running through it.  I double-needle quilted it before doing the embroidery, much easier than doing it after, however, whether it be the metallic thread in the fabric or the the metallic thread I used to quilt the fabric, in places it shows through the stitch-out. That doesn’t interfere with the finished design too much, but I did think it was a point to use as a “learning experience”.

Thanks again for all your amazing designs! Until next time, Laura

Early on I learned the beauty of a lot of colors of markers!  LOL The slightest thing while stitching can cause little *blips* and the markers are a much better option than starting all over again.  fortunately my current machine doesn’t do it, but  a prior machine was great for forgetting to back up after a tread break and prior (LOL) operator hated those little blips with just a few stitches missing.  The markers take care of those with just a quick touch!  Make sure you get markers that can handle being washed.
