Barbara Kaelin made this in Thred, using the new teardrop form option.  It is an appliqué design and stitches out very nicely. I stitched the appliqué color (the second color, white) first with muslin and tear away stabilizer hooped , and my starched scrap of magenta silk  laid over the top of the hoop.  When it finished stitching, I trimmed my appliqué fabric away, but I did not attempt to cut it away from the center of the flower.  Then I stitched the entire design again.  The chain stitch doubles back again and that works quite well.  It looks like crewel embroidery.

Thank you, Barbara!
