Tulips Cushion cross stitch is a bold floral, perfect for cushion covers and home decor statement pieces. This interesting design has a cool honeycomb feature, which is completed in back stitch.
This is NOT a full coverage cross stitch, so you won’t be stitching the background. The finished piece measures 29.9cm x 29.9cm when stitched on 14-count Aida cloth. There are 10,890 cross stitches and 750 back stitches. It’s the perfect size for cushions, table runners and tote bags and could also be enhanced with a geometric border.
The design looks great on either black or white Aida cloth, though you may want to alter the grey tones according to your preferences. There are just 3 x DMC colours in the palette but we’ve included a few alternate suggestions in the Thread Key.
This is a fairly simple project and you’ll receive charts in black and white as well as full colour. We’ve also included an extra chart that is specially formatted for Pattern Keeper in your download pack — though do remember this will only track the full cross stitches. PK does not yet recognise back stitch.
