What’s Your Favorite?

Just a quick blog post today since I’m buried in new projects.  I’ve been working in Inspirations’ Vintage Embroidery Software and designed three different groupings.  One is supposed to be a pillow but I’m having trouble deciding which one.  I need your help but first, a little background on these on-trend stitches.

Vintage Embroidery software has hundreds of built-in designs that have been digitized to give an old world charm to your embroidery.  The designs require a mixture of 15 wt. polyester and 40 wt. polyester thread. This unique combo gives a high-end retail look to your stitches.  They’re so much fun to stitch because the designs are all low-stitch count designs in a minimum of colors so they stitch quick.  With my busy schedule, I’m always looking for fast and easy with big results.  Vintage fits that bill.

Before I proceed any further on this project, I thought I’d ask you – my fellow expert embroiderers – what’s your favorite grouping?  Do you like the pink Vintage design Abs_0213_Ornamental_D?


The green Vintage design Abs_0259_Icon_D?


Or the blue Vintage design Abs_0024_Icon_D.?


Sometimes, I fall in love with all the samples and then, well, pillows become quilts. So help me stay on track and select one.  Your vote counts!

    Love them all but the blue stands out the most as my pick!

      All three are wonderful, but for a pillow, I like the rose because it fills the square. When I look at the other two, I felt that something was missing.

    Blue! It just jumps out and says stitch me!

    Usually don’t care for, but I pick the blue this time

      Ditto here: pink first, blue right behind it.

    The pink seems too busy. The green or the blue, but the blue is my favorite.

    I like to blue

  12. Sheila Wagner

    I was torn between the green and the blue. But I go for the blue.

  13. Laurie

    I think the blue one.

  14. Julie
    September 8, 2018 at 10:33 pm (2 weeks ago)

    I like the pink.

  15. Thurma Livingston-Morrison
    September 8, 2018 at 10:48 pm (2 weeks ago)

    Definitely the blue for me.

  16. Nathalie Culotta
    September 8, 2018 at 10:58 pm (2 weeks ago)

    Like the green but I think the blue makes a better pillow

  17. Chris Morrow
    September 8, 2018 at 11:03 pm (2 weeks ago)

    First is blue, second is pink, third is green.

  20. Gail Beam

    I like them in this order pink blue green

  21. Michelle Hall
    September 9, 2018 at 12:06 am (2 weeks ago)

    My favorite is the pink design, but all of them are nice.

    September 9, 2018 at 12:24 am (2 weeks ago)

    I like the Pink because it fills up the front of the pillow. It’s also a very pretty pattern!

    You asked for grouping, I’d have to say the Pink grouping/design is the most attractive and eye appealing. thank you for us.

    Blue- more professional look- adequate white space to rest the eye & enjoy all aspects of the design

  26. marie
    September 9, 2018 at 6:07 am (2 weeks ago)

    Love the blue but all are pretty.

  27. terry freeman

    I like the green Vintage design Abs_0259_Icon_D. it’s different. Seems I’ve seen the blue one or something very close and the pink is ok, but I’m not a fan of pink. perhaps in a different color

  28. Jean
    September 9, 2018 at 6:52 am (2 weeks ago)

    I like the pink and the blue comes in as a close second.

  30. Janet Kirby
    September 9, 2018 at 7:21 am (2 weeks ago)

    Blue. The design itself makes this one stand out from the rest.

  31. Annette Canonica
    September 9, 2018 at 7:37 am (2 weeks ago)

    I like the design on the pink one but the blue color looks more “vintage” to me. Guess it depends where your are putting your PILLOW!

    • eileenroche
      September 10, 2018 at 8:37 am (2 weeks ago)

      So true, Annette! But the beauty of stitching for a magazine is you design the room around the pillow. Not like real life where the palette is selected by the room decor.

  32. BiBi Khan

    Love the blue.

  33. Eve Hutchison
    September 9, 2018 at 8:43 am (2 weeks ago)

    The blue one speaks to me, really pretty.

  34. Linda
    September 9, 2018 at 9:05 am (2 weeks ago)

    I love the blue but that’s my favorite color but the blue looks like something I’ve seen on old vintage hankerchiefs.

  35. Debbie
    September 9, 2018 at 10:26 am (2 weeks ago)

    I love the pink

  36. Elaine Davis
    September 9, 2018 at 10:39 am (2 weeks ago)

    The blue is definitely my pick!

  37. Jan
    September 9, 2018 at 11:19 am (2 weeks ago)

    Blue, pink, then green!

  38. Marti Morgan
    September 9, 2018 at 11:27 am (2 weeks ago)

    Blue first – the other two are hard to decide but I think I agree wth Jan above, pink then green.

  39. Cindy Freeman
    September 9, 2018 at 11:27 am (2 weeks ago)

    I love them all, they will make phenomenal pillows. Why does it have to be one and not all? I like to make multiple pillow covers so I can switch them out as the season or mood changes. If I have to select one, the blue.

    • eileenroche
      September 10, 2018 at 8:41 am (2 weeks ago)

      Cindy, that’s a brilliant idea and really cuts down on the amount of pillows on a bed or sofa but still let’s you use a variety – just spaced over time.

  40. Denice

    I like the blue for a pillow because it is the most complete single design. The other 2 designs could easily be part of a continuous border and therefore seem more quilt like to me.

  41. Mary
    September 9, 2018 at 11:46 am (2 weeks ago)

    I love the blue for a pillow.

  42. Alice
    September 9, 2018 at 11:52 am (2 weeks ago)

    Blue is my choice. Green is calling for something in the middle, maybe a monogram. Pink doesn’t do anything for me.

  43. JoAnne
    September 9, 2018 at 12:44 pm (2 weeks ago)

    Blue definitely

  44. Karen
    September 9, 2018 at 12:46 pm (2 weeks ago)

    Picking one is hard, but would say pink.

  45. Mary Esser
    September 9, 2018 at 12:48 pm (2 weeks ago)

    I pick the blue one.

  46. Pam
    September 9, 2018 at 1:13 pm (2 weeks ago)


  47. Josie

    My favorite is the pink one because it has a classic and classy feel to it. The green has too many shapes-round, oval, diamond and circles-so there it seems disjointed to me. The blue is pretty, but my eyes are drawn to the edge stitch around the hearts instead of the entire design.

  48. Char
    September 9, 2018 at 2:21 pm (2 weeks ago)

    Beautiful designs. I like the Blue or pink for the pillow.

  49. Doree Shandera
    September 9, 2018 at 2:31 pm (2 weeks ago)

    The Blue design is my favorite but I would like it in a deep red
    They are all fabulous designs.

  50. Mary Lu Teruya
    September 9, 2018 at 2:36 pm (2 weeks ago)

    The pink

  51. Susan
    September 9, 2018 at 2:52 pm (2 weeks ago)

    Another pick for pink

  52. Kay Simolke
    September 9, 2018 at 3:40 pm (2 weeks ago)


  53. Kay Bee
    September 9, 2018 at 4:11 pm (2 weeks ago)

    The Pink is the “warmest” one to me.

  54. Vonee Davison
    September 9, 2018 at 5:41 pm (2 weeks ago)

    Blue, I would love that design in most any color! A cream color would look very vintage to me.

  55. Betty Smith
    September 9, 2018 at 5:54 pm (2 weeks ago)

    As I’m not a “pink” person my choice first was the green, the contrast with the background was just right. Second would be the blue.

  56. Chris
    September 9, 2018 at 6:50 pm (2 weeks ago)

    I love the blue!

  57. Debbie
    September 9, 2018 at 9:11 pm (2 weeks ago)

    The blue one is beautiful.

  58. Royce Zook
    September 10, 2018 at 11:11 am (2 weeks ago)

    Use one with most “white space” as it is less busy and the eye will see the design without clutter. Blue.

  59. Sandy Porto
    September 10, 2018 at 11:25 pm (2 weeks ago)

    I like the pink and blue, but favor the blue

  60. Kathleen De Verville
    September 11, 2018 at 12:20 am (2 weeks ago)

    Definitely the Blue is my first choice, then pink. the green does nothing for me.

  61. JD
    September 11, 2018 at 1:07 am (2 weeks ago)

    Love all 3 but will go with the pink one because it seems to cover the pillow area better than the other 2.

  62. Kaiti Hasenberg

    Blue, Love anything with Hearts.
