Wheat has many meanings in Christian symbolism, including representing the gifts of God, the fullness and bounty of the Lord; it is a symbol of prosperity and fruitfulness and it represents the bread of the sacrament of the Savior's Last Supper.
This design is from the Embroidery Pattern Catalogue
, a publication offering iron-on embroidery transfers that was published in the mid to late 1800s by the Thomas Brown & Sons company of Manchester, England. Many of those traditional Christian patterns were hand drawn reproductions of designs from the 13th
centuries, a period when ecclesiastical art, especially the stunning English needlework, was in its glory.
When digitizing for machine embroidery we attempted to stay as true to the original design as possible.
