Maggie Lane chessboard takeoff, IV

The final section of this sampler pillow starts with F5, mosaic; C3, Hungarian ground; D1, Horizontal satin stitch with continental stitch reversed; and, last G8, a single variation of the old Florentine.  The border is two rows of 4x4 cross stitches with fillers of straight stitches in between.

The pillow is finished with Turkish corners.  Trubey and I brought the cording and tassels back from Florence, Italy, to complete the pillow.


  1. Just beautiful! And the cording is scrumptious!

  2. I really love the colors in this--and the cording is perfect! which came first, the cording or the colors?

  3. The cording! Also have it in a medium aqua and ecru-mix.
