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!

    • Jan Homberger

      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.

    • Sandy

      Ditto here: pink first, blue right behind it.

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

  • Michelle Hall

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


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

  • kate

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

  • Anne


  • Judy

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

  • marie

    Love the blue but all are pretty.

  • 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

  • Jean

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

  • Dalene Hokanson


  • Janet Kirby

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

  • Kate Hartwell

    Pink vintage then green

  • Annette Canonica

    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

      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.

  • BiBi Khan

    Love the blue.

  • Eve Hutchison

    The blue one speaks to me, really pretty.

  • Linda

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

  • Debbie

    I love the pink

  • Elaine Davis

    The blue is definitely my pick!

  • Jan

    Blue, pink, then green!

  • Marti Morgan

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

  • Cindy Freeman

    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

      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.

  • 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.

  • Mary

    I love the blue for a pillow.

  • Alice

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

  • JoAnne

    Blue definitely

  • Karen

    Picking one is hard, but would say pink.

  • Mary Esser

    I pick the blue one.

  • Pam


  • 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.

  • Char

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

  • Doree Shandera

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

  • Mary Lu Teruya

    The pink

  • Susan

    Another pick for pink

  • Kay Simolke


  • Kay Bee

    The Pink is the “warmest” one to me.

  • Vonee Davison

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

  • Betty Smith

    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.

  • Chris

    I love the blue!

  • Abs_0213_Ornamental_D? IN THE BLUE COLOR

  • Debbie

    The blue one is beautiful.

  • Royce Zook

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

  • Sandy Porto

    I like the pink and blue, but favor the blue

  • Kathleen De Verville

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

  • JD

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

  • Kaiti Hasenberg

    Blue, Love anything with Hearts.
