Floral Elegance Designs

By Serena Nabeta | January 19, 2010

As I’ve been debating what quilt to start teaching this year, I stitched out a design from Judy Nowicki’s Floral Elegance embroidery collection and really am pleased with the quality of the embroidery. The designs are beautiful!

One of the unique stitch details about this design is that the vines running between the florals is a running stitch repeated over and over until the appropriate thickness is achieved. Most designs are digitized with a satin stitch in this area rather than a straight running stitch which gives it a heavier and unique look.

And to answer the question that many of you have been asking…..yes, these are the designs that I will be using in the next online quilt I will be teaching! :)

There are instructions included on the cd for a quilt, but I am making some changes and revisions for the quilt I will be teaching. I will be using some of the block layout designs, but adding a center medallion, adding some decorative stitches and increasing the amount of embroidery in the border of the quilt from what is pictured in the quilt on the cd. More details will be coming in the next few weeks.

EDIT as of September 2010: I do not have a starting date as to when I will be starting this new quilt as right now I am still working on stitching out the blocks and designing the quilt top. I have taken the next few months off from teaching as I am getting married in May 2011 and will be moving at that time as well. My goal is to start this new quilt in the fall of 2011! So stay tuned over the winter months to updates on the blocks and pieces as I’m able to design and stitch each one!

    Oh WOW Serena

    Please please put me on the list for this class. I have this CD of designs already and yes they are great but I didnt really know what to do – I stitched out one cushion cover. The quality is great.

    I feel a little sad that the Latte Classes have reached the end – Its been a wodnerful year and although I am a bit behind – not too badly.

    Loved doing the latte quilt and your thorough techniques. Will you be doing the same type of class for this quilt and is it necessary to purchase the CD as well as your lessons.

    Thanks – I really am still having a good time with the Latte

    Yes, you will need the cd as it contains the designs for the quilt if you are planning to take the class. And yes, this class will be the same format as the LQ class. :)

    Would like to know the colors you used in your sample? I really like them or similiar. It will give me a jumping off place to get my own. Bought the CD and am waiting for the class. Please start right away! I’m excited!
