Note from the designer: "Design books from centuries ago contain so much inspiration. I found a number of small symmetrical square motifs in a book published in 1603 that I thought looked as fresh and modern as many of the geometric cross stitch designs published today. The designers of 400 years ago really were creating timeless beauty. You could stitch all eighteen of these squares as I have as a band sampler or take advantage of any type of layout - two by nine, three by six - or just pick nine or sixteen and create a square. Stitch just one and you can make it an ornament or a scissors fob."
The model was stitched over 2 threads on 27 Ct. Banding (3.1" wide) with Sulky 12 Wt Petite Cottons or DMC floss. 31 inches of banding was used to stitch the 18 squares. Stitch Count for one square is 21x21.
Reviews From Customers Who Purchased This Item
from United States on 04/03/2023 - Every one is beautiful I bought this pattern not for the project pictured, but simply for the number of beautiful square designs. They will be perfect for scissors fobs, or for the biscornu I am addicted to.
