Celtic October is Chart of the Week

Celtic-October-Vickery-Collection-Cross-StitchI love all things Autumn, not just pumpkins and fun Halloween designs. It’s my absolute favorite time of the year, from September right through to December.

This chart caught my eye this week with the bright Autumn colors and, of course, the knotwork accents. So pretty!

Celtic October by Vickery Collection. Stitch count is 140w x 200h, and from what I can tell the model is stitched on white aida using DMC threads. Such an amazing use of color here, I honestly expected to find a list of specialty threads and overdyed floss, but according to the floss list those are standard DMC. Autumn colors are just the best ~ they don’t need any doctoring up ;-)

Okay, enough gushing about my love of Autumn.

Celtic Quilt Blocks Stitched for Love Quilts

This is an older project that folks ask me about pretty often. I recently made the Celtic Dream block available as a free cross stitch pattern and you can download that here.

I designed these four blocks as part of a Love Quilts project that a group of us here stitched together.

Dream Celtic Quilt Block Free Cross Stitch Pattern

This design was created as part of a charity project several stitchers at Stitching the Night Away did collaboratively for Love Quilts along with a few other free Celtic cross stitch designs from around the web and a few other inspirational words that I charted out.

If you’re not familiar with it, Love Quilts is a cross stitch group that creates cross stitched quilts for children with life threatening or lifelong illnesses.

You can follow the design as charted or you can choose your own colors, as Becka did in the stitched example for the Love Quilts project. Design stitch count is 120×122 and was sized to fit within the guidelines of a 9×9 block just right so that there wasn’t a lot of white space around the design.

Happy Stitching!
Kind Regards,
Loretta

We chose a theme and we all stitched at the same time and I sent our entire group of blocks in together so they could be finished into a quilt. This is the finished quilt with all of our group’s stitched quilt blocks…. We’re actually hoping to do this again this year!

Garnet Knotwork Free Cross Stitch Pattern

This is a brand new free cross stitch pattern I just finished up this week. I used three shades of garnet from DMC, but you can use any three colors you’d like, or all one color if you prefer – variegated over dyed threads are great for stitching knotwork.
