1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects / Peony Blanket - not too shabby on: August 11, 2008 04:54:47 PM
Using a forest green/hunter green stadium blanket, I machine embroidered some purchased designs on it with my mothers initials. (Blanket was for her... duh)

The open peony on the back 2 corners and a photorealistic peony with her initials on the center of the other end. I did it on the short sides because the blanket was for her chair.. and so the short end would show.

Here is the peony on the back 2 corners. The colors are a little more intense in the picture then in reality. I used Madeira Polyneon. The original design called for white center and purples but the peonies in our garden are fuscia/pinks with yellow centers, so I altered the colors.




Here is the center front design. The oval border around my mom's initials (CMS and done in Vermont font) is a two-tone "candlewicking" design. The candlewick turned out much nicer then expected.
