NOUVEAU BIRDS & LEAVES
Hoop sizes 4” x 4” to 9.5” x 14”
The Nouveau Birds and Leaves collection was inspired by the Arts and Crafts / Art Deco era with beautiful, graceful lines and elements. This collection has two distinct design sets in it. The first design set is stencil inspired leaves digitized two different ways. The first way is with a motif fill and satin stitch outline. The second way is with a 7-ply running stitch so that the outlines would be very bold. The designs can be linked together down a pant leg or for a quilt block. The second set is comprised of more leaves of a different style and birds. The birds were digitized in two truly unique ways. The first way is a stitched version, the fill stitch part of the bird uses contour running stitches and hand stippling for a light yet interesting look. The birds look great on garments this way because they remain light. The second version of the birds is created with a 7-ply running stitch that looks great on garments for a light look or you can do them as reverse applique. There is also a version of the birds created for raw edge applique. We used leather on the applique designs.
