Phat Quarter Finds – Flaming Nora’s Flash Cards

Mr X Stitch presents Phat Quarter Finds

The Phat Quarter is our Flickr group where you can share pictures of your best stitcheries! Each week we pick one of the great embroideries shared at the Phat Q and share it with you lot!

Flaming Nora produced these machine embroidered flash cards of her “sons using shadows. Stitched with Sylko machine thread (36 weight) on to a linen canvas, which was then mounted on to a coarser linen canvas backed with woven iron on interfacing.”

Lovely job! Those boys have future heirlooms.
