Stitch n' Paint Embroidery

My terraced pathway project hasn't been the only landscape I've been working on this week! I've just released this new landscape design for machine embroidery:

This is a Stitch n' Paint Design, which means it's designed for you to stitch it on your embroidery machine, then paint the surface with fabric paints or markers. You could also add extra texture and embellishment with beads, buttons, and decorative threads!

The inspiration for this new series of designs (yes, there will be many more) was adult coloring books I see popping up everywhere. While I love the creative designs in these books, I always prefer to work with fabric. Because it's so easy to hoop and stitch the design with your embroidery machine, you can always have a cute mini quilt ready to color or embellish anytime.

Now for the nitty gritty - this design measures 5 x 7 inches (127 v 178 mm) so you'll need to double check your hoop size to make sure it fits. We're also releasing designs in all the major embroidery file types: ART, ART USB EXP, DST, EXP, HUS, JEF, PCS, PES, SEW, VIP, VP3, XXX.

I decided on the 5 x 7 size so you could easily frame the design in a standard sized picture frame. Simply trim the extra fabric and batting from around the design and pop it into the frame so it can be easily hung on the wall or displayed on a table.

So what do you think? Are you ready to stitch and paint a beautiful landscape quilt with me? Click Here to find this new design!

Let's go quilt!
