Patchwork of Peace, Border

This has been a very fun piece to stitch. And, I am done in time to post for Labor Day.

While stitching 247 squares did feel insurmountable at the start, breaking it into smaller sections helped. And, stitching other pieces in between kept this feeling fresh.

The border is a simple slanted gobelin 3 x 3 using Kreinik #8 Braid 002 (just a little more than 1 spool).

Thanks again to Mary Clark Donegan for writing the original book (it’s a great stitch dictionary), to Connie Camp with Nashville Needleworks for writing the supplement booklet (fully compensated squares made stitching this much easier), and all who serve in the military.
