Jardin de Poche

This delightful and small project is for both embroiderers and appliqué enthusiasts. A traditional shape, the orange peel, revisited and extended to include a mini garden, a “Jardin de Poche” (pocket garden). Whilst keeping the embroidery to 3 or 4 of the most traditional stitches  you will make some gorgeous flowers such as poppies ( my favorites), lilly of the valley , fuchsias, lavender, just to name some.

We all have a lovely stash of embroidery threads that we are dying to use in a project, and this is the perfect opportunity. In a working style booklet I have given some suggestions for the colours of the flowers but after it is your garden so you need to choose your colours’ scheme. And there is even a section per flowers for you to right which threads and colours you are using for each specific flower.

The appliqué is  simple, but it’s all in the fabrics ! Lovely Liberty lawns and 1930’s to give that fresh and timeless look.

The whole project is on a linen/coton background, the perfect setting for Liberty fabrics and embroidery. As for the quilting the word is KISS ( keep it simple s…).

I have kept it small but it is up to you to double or triple some of your favorites flowers and if you do make a queen size quilt please send me a picture.

I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I have. I did found hard to stop making more blocks !
