Patches – A Garden Sampler

Patches - A Garden Sampler

This chart works up to be an ADORABLE 5″ sampler of threads and stitches that anybody would be proud to display. The original was stitched on 24 ct. Congress cloth but of course, you can stitche it on any evenweave. Four skeins of Caron Collection threads were used and Lois Caron suggests that one should have a great deal of variegation, one should be solid or very subtly variegated and that there should be contrast between the four colors even if you’re using pale pastels. She used Waterlilies in Jade, Cardinal, Ethiopia and Soie Cristale 4032. The whole idea here is to use these stitches and create your own garden of stitches which Lois shows you how to do. Recreate her garden or create your very own. This sampler is just adorable! The stitch charts are LARGE and easy to read! There’s grid paper included so you can design your own garden and this chart comes in at 17 pages. Ask us to pull your favorite colors for you!
