Quilt Pattern, A New Loretta Spears Design


Quilt Pattern Progress Photos

This mid-1980s design is called "Quilt Pattern" and is new to me.  I'm afraid I don't know anything about the size or if this was a line drawn canvas by Loretta.  I will post progress photos as the stitcher works this interesting and complex design.

It's being blog-stitched by Needle Arts and Beyond, the same person who stitched the beginner needlepoint design from Loretta's shop.

Needle Arts and Beyond says this was a class project at Loretta's shop around 1986.  She goes on to say, "The design is line drawn on 18 count tan canvas and uses 8 different colors of floss from DMC – 518, 519, 951, 918, 919, 920, 921 and 922. The finished size will be 9 3/8 inches by 13 1/8 inches." You can read more about the project here and see her working the complicated inner border.
