Awesome stitches

 

In Lesley Teare's signature Blackwork style, here are 3 awesome pieces that have been stitched using a mix of Cross stitch and Backstitch. Look close and notice how each area of the design is filled with a different motif,  each of different levels of density resulting in distinctive shades. Brilliant!

Crazy Quilting

 

Crazy quilts became hugely popular in Victorian times and if you're lucky you might come across one at a flea market. They combine pieces of irregular shapes into a patchwork, each piece assembled to the next using a variety of embroidery stitches such a feather stitch.

This cross stitch pattern designed by Lesley Teare is inspired by those late 19th century designs. It incorporates different "printed fabric" motifs as well as many different scraps of "lace".

Delicately blending Blackwork and color

 

Here are 6 Blackwork studies by Lesley Teare, each combining densely filled Blackwork flower motifs with colorful areas filled with cross stitch. There is a little bit of challenge in stitching the Blackwork motifs, but the stitched piece is so decorative,  it's well worth it's while.

Learn the ropes

 

While many of Lesley Teare's patterns are basic cross stitch pieces, some designs incorporate a few fractional cross stitches. A typical combination would be a three-quarter cross-stitch combined with a quarter cross stitch in another color. These stitches are necessary when very fine definition is needed such as for delimitating a face and hair.

If you've never tried factional stitches before, or you are a little puzzled on how to proceed, Lesley's here to help!

Check out Lesley Teare's extensive cross stitch guide that comes with every pattern. It includes step by step tutorials for each and every fractional stitch and well as other helpful tips.

No surprises:

All pattern descriptions include detailed information about number of colors, size and materials used. To help you select the pattern that's right for you, we have specified for each design which stitches are used in the chart.
