Patchwork of Peace Row 4 Blue

Maybe because these rows of blue are shorter but I find myself planning what threads are used more carefully than what I did for the red and white rows. I don’t want to clump colors or thread types together.

The Reverse Cashmere (Block 14, 3rd blue block from the right) creates small diamond shapes where you can see the holes. You can’t see through them as I made sure my pathway covered the holes from below. It’s another very subtle pattern and the opening could fit a small bead, if beads were desired. There won’t be any beads on this piece.

The Diagonal Scotch/Byzantine Variation (Block 15, 4th blue block from the right) needs a larger area to better appreciate the pattern. Only the center diagonal stripe shows it.

The Giant Rice pattern (Block 16, 5th blue block from the right) could have been stitched in 2 contrasting colors rather than just 2 contrasting fibers to show off the pattern more.

Starting with the blue block on the right (#12) moving to the left (#19), I used the following threads (1 strand unless noted):

12 – Kreinik #12 Braid 051HL and Merino Wool 98L/45622 (2 strands)

13 – Elegance E862 and Bijoux MMT427 (4 strands)

14 – Soie Crystale 7041 (2 strands)

15 – Pebbly Perle P07 (2 strands) and Au Ver A Soie 100/3 SMS510 (2 strands)

16 – Entice E212 (2 rayon and 1 polyester filaments removed) and Bella Lusso 540

17 – Entice E255 (2 rayon and 1 polyester filaments removed) and Splendor S965 (2 strands)

18 – Wildflowers 0076

19 – Planet Earth 6 ply Silk 1105
