Daisy Field is an Ellen Evett Designs original, and a contemporary take on candlewicking. Large daisy flowers are tossed across the bed and accented with a background dot. Each stem is hand embroidered first with a chain stitch, which is then overstitched with a satin stitch. The padded satin stitch technique adds to the overall charming three-dimensional effect of this bedspread. The Daisy Field bedspread works well in both traditional and contemporary interiors.
Flora's Basket is The Heirloom Collection's interpretation of a traditional candlewick bedspread. The layout, design motifs, and stitching techniques used are all found in the rare, existing bedspreads. The central flower basket is surrounded by a vine border filled with flowers typical of the mid-nineteenth century. Also, a typical motif of this period is the grapevine pattern which borders the sides of the bed. Flora's Basket is an appropriate pattern for interiors dating from the late eighteenth through nineteenth centuries.
