Delightful sprays of blue cornflowers alternate with deep green cypress trees, a common motif in Mediterranean embroidery. I’ve arranged this charming floral design as a mirrored border, but you could easily use the designs in a variety of ways: the floral sprays or cypress trees as single motifs for a smaller project such as a child’s dress or pincushion, the small center border on a towel or small bag, or re-orient the design as a double-ended table runner. Or, if you want a longer table runner, simply use a longer piece of fabric and work more repeats.
