Heart of Peace


In our troubled times, who wouldn't wish for Peace?

Designer Faby Reilly does so, the way, she knows best... in stitches.


This pattern sends a message of Peace, with a motif full of strong symbolism. But there is more. An expert needlework designer, Faby Reilly introduces some really interesting specialty stitches that add a dimensional effect to the cross stitch. The peace symbol is outlined using an interesting stitch, the Palestrina stitch, that creates a sort of lozenge-shaped chain. By contrast, the frail curves of the olive branch are emphasized using Woven Backstitch. Finally a bead is used for the dove's eye.


Benefit from an expert's bonus tips: the chart comes with a framing tutorial designed for round patterns that can be a bit tricky to frame.


A tutorial is included with the chart for all specialty stitches.
