My designs are brought to life with pieces of fabric and a large palette of threads to create unique applique patterns that embrace my passion for the art of handwork. Patterns contain detailed color embroidery instructions to achieve the realistic results of my artistic style of painting with thread.

Naturalist's Notebook Block 10



The Pardalot's Confusion is a composition that exercises artistic license. The Pardalot from Australia is confused as to why an American Checkerspot Butterfly is in the wrong environment and country--thus his "confusion".

This is the tenth and final block in the Naturalist's Notebook series and includes lovely embroidery including the Checkerspot Butterfly. The full size pattern includes a color embroidery instruction booklet and a separate color coded applique numbering sheet.

The block measures 13.75" wide by 8.5" tall.
