Poinsettia Mug Rug/Coasters...Had to digitize something to go with the Holly!! The first photo was my first test stitch-out...(the green ones are the back sides) Then a small change for the 2nd stitch-out...Can you see the difference in the two? Which one do you prefer? I am pleased with the results and they look lovely with the Holly Mug Rug/Coasters...I am also showing the back side...Love that they are quilted through!

This is the most beautiful Pointsettia I've ever seen. So sorry to see that you don't sell this design. I may have to look from somethings that be close to your design. Thanks for sharing.

Another lovely design and stitchout. They are both pretty, but I think I prefer the one without the stitching in the outer petals, I might even be tempted to leave out the quilting on the inner petals too and just have the veins on the leaves stitched through. Of course if the red fabric used was plain, I would definitely want the stitching. Isn't it fun to play around with design elements..

1 comment
dragonflyer by dragonflyer 29 May 2016

Thanks for your kind comments...and yes, playing is part of the fun...I have done some without the stitching on the petals...they are a bit "fluffier" than these...not compressed with the stitches...

by peafarm 29 May 2016

What I spy [I think] is perhaps a different direction of the centers and the larger petals are not quilted through?? Both are just as lovely as the other.

Perfect as always. They would be so awesome in the Christmas decor.
Sorry I can not tell the difference between first stitch out and second.. possibly due my aging eyes. To me they both look great.

Beautiful. I prefer the second one as it gives a bit of a contrast between the two layers of leaves.
I have yet to stitch mine - the garden needed a lot of attention after having been neglegted for two weeks.

I just love the detail that you applied both are wonderful but I can understand the one with only the center stitching gives the eye of break. Excellent job on both.
