    Celtic Sampler

    Starting at: £6.95

    I do not like quarter stitches. They are tiresome to stitch, difficult to chart clearly and very often do not add the smooth curve that designers hope they will to a design. In most types of traditional Cross stitch they are very seldom used. The only exception is Assisi, in which they are more frequently found. There, however, the outline stitches are worked first and the cross stitches used to fill the background area of the design afterwards. In Cross stitch designs that do use quarter stitches, it is necessary to stitch them before working any back stitch and this can add to the complications. Having said all this, I shall continue to avoid quarter stitches as far as possible, but thought that I should design a piece of embroidery where they were essential and then devise the best method of approach. The result is this Celtic sampler in which the areas of colour are solid and the outlines all in black thread. Not really painful and worth the finished result. Learn More
