I learned to embroider when I was a kid, when everyone was really into cross stitch (remember the '80s?). Eventually, I migrated to surface embroidery, teaching myself with whatever I could get my hands on...read more

Embroidered L-O-V-E


Amazon Books

This last February, I posted an embroidery pattern for Love, in a Box. I LOVE it when readers send photos of embroidery they’ve done with my patterns, and it just so happens that Janice worked Love, in a Box, and sent me photos. I thought I’d share those with you!

The pattern for this embroidery project is made up of letters from the flowered monogram series here on Needle ‘n Thread. Janice worked the design in blue, on white, then quilted around the outside of the design with a very nice feather design.

She backed the pillow with a pretty blue flowered fabric, to make a really gorgeous finished project!

When I developed the pattern, I had in mind an embroidered pillow, so I was really happy to see this finished project from such a talented stitcher! And hey, I really admire anyone who finishes a project, and finishes it so well! (I’m not the best finisher in the world!) Janice is also the stitcher of the “To Market” embroidered waffle weave towel I posted a little while ago!

Thanks so much, Janice, for sending along the pictures! It’s always really encouraging to know that people do like and use the embroidery patterns posted here on Needle ‘n Thread!

  1. I have plans! I really do, it just takes awhile for me to get around to them because of all my other projects….but I thought in the center of a quilt it would be gorgeous.
    sigh. Someday.

  2. Hi, Raspberry! I totally know the feeling! Yep, I agree – the middle of a quilt would be neat.

    MGM – yes, a perfect little lovely (lovey) wedding gift!
