Patchwork of Peace (canvaswork) #135-667-0001
This absolutely stunning canvaswork project is a sampler design of the American flag inspired by Susan Ives' hand-painted canvas, "Super Old Glory". Designer Mary Clark Donegan has this to say, "My own patriotic feelings, combined with my love for stitching and sharing, are what started this book. Not only is this book a stitch guide for SASI's "Super Old Glory", but also a wonderful book filled with 247+ stitches for you to experiment with. You will find a listing of threads which I used for "Super Old Glory". There were five shades of blue, five of red, and three of white. I encourage you to experiment with different fibers to suit your tastes. I have purposefully NOT instructed you on what colors to use with what stitch. I feel this will truly make "Super Old Glory" a one-of-a-kind heirloom. Within each stitch chart, you will also find suggestions for use and any helpful hints about the stitch. I've included an index where you will find some common areas you might need to stitch and a list of suggested stitches for these areas. Experimentation is the key to making a canvas your own!" When worked on 18 count mono canvas, without an edge design size will be 16.9" x 11.6".
