Evanthi means “fair flower” in Greek and this delicate floral design is resplendent with flowers and buds. Worked in shades of turquoise and corals, the primary floral motif emerges out of a heart shape, which in Byzantine times was associated with roses. Grounded by a vining border, the design can be worked as a framed textile, wall hanging, pillow, or as a double-ended runner.
