A couple months ago, I shared this hand embroidery pattern for a lily and buds in a diamond outline.
And to complete this collection of these “tiles” for hand embroidery, here’s a Tudor-style rose and bud in the same general configuration.
All four patterns – the rose, the lily, the wheat, the grapes – are generally the same shape, and so they could work very well together for a series of small hand embroidered tiles.
Or, given the subjects, they could be easily used for church embroidery patterns, worked on altar frontals, vestments, and the like.
This is just to give you an idea of how all four designs could go together, since they’re all basically the same diamond configuration.
I have a plan brewing in the back of my brain for these four tiles, but it’s going to be a while before I can tackle that plan, so I thought I might as well share all the patterns with you in the meantime! Maybe you can do something with them more immediately than I can…
Anyway, all four patterns are easily adaptable to a wide variety of embroidery techniques, from whitework to goldwork to silk shading and whatever else occurs to you!
