The Diagonal Victorian Step stitch in Block 6 (from the left) was tricky. I really had to move along stitching the unit which Connie conveniently highlighted in the diagram. And, even with that, I was very appreciative of seeing the compensation diagrammed for me.

I used just 1 strand of silk on Blocks 5, 6, and 9 which provided full coverage because of the stitches (Oblong Cross, Diagonal Victorian Steps, and Alternating Slanted Gobelin, respectively).

Starting with the block on the right (#1) moving to the left (#19), I used the following threads (1 strand unless noted):

1 – Pepper Pot Silk 018 (2 plus not laid) and Pepper Pot Silk 017 (1 ply)

2 – Silk Lame Braid Petite SP08 and Needlepoint Inc Silk 503 (2 strands)

3 – Kreinik #8 Braid 003V and Bella Lusso 764

4 – Planet Earth 6 ply Silk 1005 (2 strands) and Elegance E820

5 – Splendor S820

6 – Planet Earth 6 ply Silk 1009

7 – Pepper Pot Silk 018 (2 plys not laid)

8 – Soie d’ Alger 4624 (2 strands) and Kreinik #8 Braid 421

9 – Au Ver A Soie 100/3 SMS 499

10 – Splendor S820 and Splendor S1005

11 – Needlepoint Inc Silk 502 (2 strands) and Kreinik #8 Braid 061

12 – Bella Lusso 764 and Entice E239 and

13 – Soie d’ Alger 4624 (2 strands)

14 – Elegance E800 and Silk Lame Braid Petite SP08

15 – Au Ver A Soie 100/3 SMS 499 and Kreinik #8 Braid 061

16 – Pepper Pot Silk 018 (1 ply) and Pepper Pot Silk 017 (1 ply)

17 – Splendor S1005 (2 strands) and Kreinik #8 Braid 5505

18 – Planet Earth 6 ply Silk 1005 (2 strands)

19 – Bella Lusso 764
