Vintage Crazy Patchwork
CROSS STITCH PATTERN DESIGNED BY Lesley Teare Designs
This - entirely cross stitch - piece is designed as if there were a multitude of little vintage scraps of fabric assembled together in the manner of crazy quilting.
The various motifs are in fact purely cross stitch, with a line of backstitch fixing the blocks side by side, in the manner of an embrodery stitch. There is a great variety of motifs, in different sizes, with different repeats. One piece of "fabric" features an oversize rose, in contrast with the other smaller motifs in perfect harmony of colors. There are some pieces of "lace" too that have been combined with the color "fabrics" and add to the "trompe l'oeil" effect.
The pattern is a delight to stitch, with ever changing little scraps of motifs. The finished piece is very decorative and could be used for making either a cushion cover or a bag.
