Pomegranate Collection patterns are designs which I have not stitched a sample yet for the cover image, but I just couldn't wait to share this design! So, these are less expensive and only available as downloads. If you stitch a Pomegranate Collection pattern and submit it for photography, you'll receive a $50 Avlea website credit (and you get your embroidery back, too!). Contact me at if you are interested in submitting your embroidery.


This stunning design originates in the highly ornamented hand-painted borders that are found in illuminated manuscripts and frescoes from the Byzantine era. It features a complex primary border of intertwining leaves surrounding stylized rondels and is then finished with an interlocking outer border and a triangular inner border. The design is completed with lovely flourishes along the outer perimeter in true Byzantine style.
