Pomegranate Collection patterns are designs which I have not stitched a sample yet for the cover image, but I just couldn't wait to share this design! So, these are less expensive and only available as downloads (not kits or patterns). If you stitch a Pomegranate Collection pattern and submit it for photography, you'll receive a $50 Avlea website credit (and you get your embroidery back, too!). 

 

Ornate, stylized flowers are interlaced with a leafy diagonal border to create a stunning design in the style of cushion cover borders found in the Cyclades islands in the Mediterranean Sea. These types of embroidered cushions were a means of displaying a family’s wealth and were stacked together so the borders could be seen to best advantage.

Worked in a muted color palette in place of the original bright hues, this design would make a lovely cushion cover or table mat.
