So..What Would YOU Do With This?

Oh Embroidery Library..how you tempt me with your designs....  This one of the beautiful designs from "A Fluttering Filigree" design pack.  I just wish the set was on sale.

The others in the set are equally stunning.  Very simple and elegant.  Most of Emblibrary's designs are extremely dense taking hours to stitch out.  I have done a couple where it took 5 hours to do it like this one:

From Embroidery Designs

I have no clue what to do with the above stitchout.  I just don't think creatively with crafty stuff.   I wouldn't know what to do with the butterflies either.  I'm such a practical boring person when it comes to stuff and home decorating.

So, what would you do with the above design if you could have it made for you?  It's on a cream type Kona fabric and I have 6 different designs done.  Or with the butterfly set?  Let me know and post it.  

I think it's an 8x8 inch design.  I was thinking a quilt with the set, but at 5 hours a piece and having to wait for each thread change, it's not practical.

I love the large designs since I can use them on my Topaz but I hate having a pile of designs with nothing to use them for.

Ok....so you don't want an entire quilt....how making a bed throw where it would drape across your bed or sofa, where every....and the part that shows the most are your designs. Perhaps 3 feet wide and how ever long you need/want it to be. I hope that makes sense. Those are too beautiful not to use....you must use them!!! :)

Smiles,

A small wholecloth pillow with the butterfly would be beautiful - and then of course you'd have to make a larger wholecloth with the butterfly in the corners - a floral bouquet in the middle. Stunning.

I'm not very good at the home dec thing... I'd save them as orphan blocks, and eventually put them all together in a sampler quilt, probably with a combination of different sizes of pieced and embroidered blocks. They are definitely too pretty to waste.

Since the design has so many curves I would do a small geometric border around each one - ala Storm at Sea or something like that using colors from the stitch out design. A long table runner would be pretty or a small wall hanging using the blocks you have done. Beautiful block.
