Apparently this was also called the Mini Empress Diamond.  It was published in October 1995 as The Mini Empress by Loretta Spears Designs.

Materials List:
white Congress cloth (unknown dimensions)
three shades of red Empress Silk*
Kreinik copper (?) metallic

*Empress Silk was overdyed Chinese silk from Needle Necessities, now discontinued.   This website has a color card and apparently some skeins left but I don't know which colors were called for in the instructions.  Substitute any silk floss in three shades of red as seen above.
