Koi Fish - Water Lily Applique
Original Artwork by Lourdes S McClure
Create beautiful wall hangings with these applique squares featuring delicate Asian inspired koi fish, lily pads and flowers. The set includes designs in 6x10, 6x8 and 5x7 size.
Each panel can be finished in the embroidery hoop with satin stitch outline and easily joined together as shown in the blue/white hanging. Alternatively, you can omit the final satin stitch outline and join them together like quilt squares for a more realistic look as shown in dark blue/orange hanging. Then add the frame of your choice for a stunning end result. Full directions are given in pdf format.
