The final area is a lovely pattern called floral cross. It’s stitched in several stages.

First I stitched the straight stitches with the darkest color of Silk Lame’ Braid, SL80.

Next I stitched the straight stitches between the “skeleton” of the darker color. I used four strands of the Mandarin floss for this step, M910.

Next I added diagonal stitches with Silk Lame’ Braid, SL24.

The final step was to stitch cross stitches over the intersections of the “skeleton”, with fine metallic braid, Kreinik #8 007HL.

I’m really pleased with the final result of this little quilt block-inspired project!

Here are the step by step diagrams:

This has been fun for me, and I hope it has been for you as well. The next project will start soon!
