Here is another interesting pattern from the book I posted about yesterday...it is a cushion with different styles of embroidery work. Of course, the stitching drew my attention...and it reminded me of crazy quilting.
Here is the pattern piece included in the book.
While looking around, I also saw this image of a peacock feather.
It was a little surprising, because I have seen it several times before...at various sites. It is clear to me now, that the design was not their original idea at all...but was from this book...which I do not recall ever having been mentioned.
