Pattern FOUR CONERS by Di Kirchner from The Handpicked Collection for Inspiration Studios, Featuring Crewel Embroidery
Elegant and richly shaded crewelwork panel on sturdy linen twill, perfect to use as an insert for a wooden footstool base.
Inspirations Studios describe this technique:
"Crewelwork is loved for its stylised imagery and dramatic colour palette and this magnificent square footstool is a perfect example of both.
Rich shades of China blue, honeysuckle yellow, mauve and wine red have been used to work a single motif into each corner; a golden sunflower, a bunch of luscious grapes, a rotund plum and an elegant tulip. Coral berries, tipped with black, are scattered amongst shaded leaves, forming a cross of gently arching stems.
Worked with crewel wool onto linen twill, this superb design would be equally at home on a cushion or hanging on a wall."
