100 Details In 100 Days - Day 55

Yesterday, I mentioned that my husband and I went to an antique flea market in Wisconsin and I hit the transfer jackpot!

Well, I came across a large ziplock bag full of what I thought was misc. iron-on transfers. They were simply marked, "embroidery patterns" and at only $3.00 for the whole bagful, I didn't care of there were any duplicates to what I already have. I didn't look through them, I just handed the dealer my $3.00 and went on my merry way.

When I got home and sat down with my goodies, what I found in this bag was what I believe are all original hand drawn patterns. All done in pencil on either tissue paper and brown paper bags. The variety is amazing and most of them are signed, "Ella".

I thought it would be fun to share a few of them with you so today's detail is one of Ella's patterns. If you would like to see what outline embroidery looks like on a crazyquilt block, visit Karen South's blog. Be sure to scroll all the way down because she has several photos with beautiful embroidery and much of it outline work.

Click on any of my photos to go to my Flickr page where can download a larger version of any of my 100 Days patterns.

What a cute little filler! Thank you so much for all the things you put up. I save them *all*! I'm going to try one of those peacocks before I finish my current project.
