The colors and textures featured in this design are truly something special! The movement of the rolling hills and the fluffy clouds play off each other so nicely. This design would be a great addition to a gallery wall, office space or anywhere you want to daydream a little every now and then!

Materials List

  • Quilting cotton in a rose color, such as Konafabric in Woodrose
  • 1 (5-inch [13-cm]) embroidery hoop
  • 1 size 5 darner needle from the DMC Darners Needle pack sizes 1–5
  • 1 embroidery needle

Directions

  1. Begin by transferring your design to the fabric using your preferred method. Once it has been transferred and the fabric is attached to the hoop, start filling in the layers of the mountains. Begin with the top layer and work your way down. Use all 6 strands of each color listed below with a size 5 needle from the DMC Darners Needle pack sizes 1–5. Use satin stitch to complete each layer of the hills. The colors for each layer from top to bottom are #3826, #3778, #729, #781and #3771.

  2. Next, switching to an embroidery needle, use DMC Diamant thread in Light Gold and satin stitch to fill in the stars and the moon. Use running stitch for the tiny dots among the stars.

  3. Finally, it’s time to add in the clouds! For this, use the size 18 darner needle from the size 14–18 pack. Using the yarn, fill in the clouds with French knots. Use the Fluffy Cloud Technique! Once the clouds are complete, you are done with this beautiful warm-toned landscape. Close the back of the hoop.
