Bees in the Blossom


– Embroidered bees busy themselves in a wreath of leaves and blossom, created with needleturn and semi-detached applique. The wreath sits over a simply pieced background that is lightly quilted.
– Learn how to add a little dimension to your projects with semi-detached applique. Double-sided fabric leaves and blossom are partly attached, allowing them to sit up from the background and cast a shadow. This simple technique adds depth and texture to your needlework.
– ”Bees in the Blossom” combines a great variety of technique… patchwork, embroidery, needleturn, semi-detached applique and quilting.
