When you name a design “South of the Border”, your color choices are endless - vivid, pastel, lively, muted - and you can truly make this design your own by selecting a favorite color palette.
If you like the challenge of learning new flowers, there are lots of new flower techniques here and a different leaf to go with each. The lacelike chiffon lilies are stitched with a variation of my “Archie drizzle” technique and stamens are added with the new cast-on pistil stitch. The fan flower is made with a bullion-woven buttonhole stitch, the colors quietly echoed in its leaf veins. Amazon asters sway in the gentle southern breeze, and you'll stitch the lollipop lily, Argentine weeping lilies and the rain lily – all with new techniques that can be used on other designs. The teacup flower collects cast-on stitches and bullions together, so you can have your afternoon "cuppa" right here among the flowers.
Design: 5” x 7” on 10” x 12” fabric
