Patchwork of Peace, Row 6 White

It didn’t take me long to realize that once I sit down with a project to stitch, I want to get a significant portion done on it. So, stitching a block a day for this project, Patchwork of Peace, won’t work. If I stitch sections for a couple of days every 2-3 weeks that will get me through it by Labor Day. That’ll still allow me to stitch on other projects during the year to come. The more I stitch on Congress Cloth, the better I like it. With good light, it’s not too difficult on my eyes. Anything smaller and I’d have to get out my magnifying glass.

The design area is 9″ x 13″ on Congress Cloth. I add 2″ on all sides and use 13″ x 17″ bars.

Starting with the block on the right (#1) moving to the left (#11), I used the following threads (1 strand unless noted):

1 – Impressions 100 and DMC #12 Ecru

2 – Soie Cristale 0057 (2 strands) and Subtley Y899

3 – Burmillana 3845 (2 strands) and Silk Lame Braid Petite SP100

4 – Bella Lusso 001 and Elegance E800

5 – Wildflowers 000 and Pashmina 261 (2 threads)

6 – Designer’s Dream 002 and Treasure Braid Petite PB10 (2 strands)

7 – DMC #8 B5200 and DMC Floche Blanc (2 strands)

8 – Soie Perlee SPS694 and Kreinik #8 102

9 – Wildflowers 118 and Soie Cristale 0057 (2 strands)

10 – Trebizond 125 and Elegance E800

11 – Impressions 100 and Kreinik #4 032C
