The English translation of the Latin in this design is "Hail Mary, Full of Grace" from the Ave Maria (Salutatio Angelica), the prayer calling for the intercession of Mary, the mother of Jesus.
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 and 14th centuries and were created specifically for embroidery on vestments and other church linens.
When digitizing for machine embroidery we attempted to stay as true to the original design as possible.
