These designs can be assembled in many ways. One would
be to just sew them together along the edges of
the squares. Another would be to sew them together
and then add a row of black satin stitches between
the squares to look like stained glass. You can piece them together with black fabric as I did in my sample below. You could also use white fabric or stitches to look
like a window looking out on the fantasy scene.
Or sew them together and then use a decorative stitch
on your machine with some sparkly thread to set
off the squares. You will
receive ideas for different methods of putting
these designs together.
The small set of designs will make a picture (without
any borders added) 12"x16", the medium
will be 15"x20" and the large, 17.5"x23".
Though a different theme, this set will coordinate nicely with Stained Glass The Swan & The Tiger. I have used many of the same colors and also some of the same foliage to tie the two embroideries together
NEW ADDITIONAL DESIGN: I have had some requests
to put a satin stitch border around the designs
so they can be stitched together after they are
completed without extra fabric. I have included
a design that has just the border in each size -
if desired you can load this after you stitch your
square and then stitch a satin border around the
square. You can do this with or without background
fabric slid under the hoop. To see the design click
