This exciting course reviews the basic principles of Blackwork to create these elegant Spring Tulips. You will be working with tulle, fabric markers, fabric paint and embroidery floss on 32-count linen. You will be placing the design on the fabric following drawn design and the detailed instructions. There is no over-all chart for the placement of patterns because you will decide that, with the variety of Blackwork patterns provided. These tulips are gently blowing in the spring garden.
