This intriguing piece suggests the lines of a carpet;
a bold inner geometric design surrounded by a wide border. You will learn
how to manipulate hand-dyed threads so that the same colors flow up each
side of a padded shape. Stitch a background where the use of exposed threads
enhances the pattern and produces a subtle effect. The six shapes are filled
with patterns, using both solid and hand-dyed threads. The border, by means
of the width, the patterns, and the beads, frames and completes the entire
design. The proper and careful laying of multi-plied threads and securely
attaching beads will be stressed. Color choices will be available.
