PATCH FLORA – NOVELTY MOBILES, TRAPUNTO & MOTIF DESIGNS
This section presents a collection of designs for novelty mobiles, machine trapunto items and quilted decor motifs. Quilted motifs are ideal for decorating many items around the home, such as cushions or curtain tie-backs, or they can be appliqued to clothing or used as brooches. A combination of quilting and free machine embroidery is used to make oversize examples of real butterflies. These are so realistic they could fly off your work! Apart from the uses suggested above, the butterflies could also be added to floral appliqués, or mounted to make an environmentally friendly butterfly display.
Most of the designs in the floral applique section of the catalogue can be reworked in machine trapunto technique.
