The inspiration for Jan’s newest pattern came from an oil painting c. 1700’s by a Dutch artist, Jan van Huysum. The Floral Urn is hand appliquéd and embellished with tiny seed beads. The Urn is then filled with roses and flowers made with delicate touches of embroidery and ribbon work. A broderie perse butterfly adds the finishing touch to this beautiful design. Instructions for the techniques used are included in the pattern. Jan’s sample was professionally framed. It would also make a lovely addition to an embellished quilt as a block or a center medallion.
