This 1860’s pattern comes from Germany and was lent to me by a good friend. This design as shown is made up of two verticle repeats and two horizontal repeats and the patterns you receive will reflect the same. While the original background was in black, I have chosen to make it a pale blue for ease of stitching. Comprised of 44 DMC colors, it is 248 stitches wide by 213 stitches tall and can be expanded in both directions. While originally designed for a carpet runner, this would look striking as a chairseat or a cushion front.
