Vintage Embroidery Monday – Tulips Section 1a

I’m sure that almost everyone in the upper part of the Northern Hemisphere is more than ready for winter to be over and to make the transition into the warmer temperatures of spring.  So in the hopes of helping that along, for the next five weeks, I’m going to be posting a pattern for Tulips that the Workbasket pattern page says is designed to be embroidered onto a 36″ square Luncheon Cloth.  The pattern is way too large to fit on single sheet of printer paper so when Dave was tracing them, he divided the pattern onto 5 pages.

Then in the sixth week, I’ll post the small Tulip pattern that is intended to be embroidered to make matching napkins.

The pattern is available as a pdf here.

    Thanks! It is lovely just as a single applique or embroidery. If I could make it small enough, it would even go on a CQ block.
