Gold metallic thread
Thank you for the help with the thread used with the Cretan Stitch. I will give it a try.
Embroidery Thread Used
Vicky actually used a metallic gold thread for this technique. Hope you give it a try!
emboidery thread used?
The photo looks like a perle cotton was used for Cretan stitch. That seems a little thick when it comes to burying knot in batting. Please help.
RE: Pattern Accuracy
Please revise the second measurement at the top of the cutting chart on page 80 to 3 1/4" x 10". All else is correct, including the measurements noted on the Assembly Diagram. Thanks!
sorry again--the 9 1/4" is correct
sorry--after making a block the 9 1/4" strip is correct--the mistake in this is the initial strips that should be cut to 3 3/4"
I stand corrected
the 9 1/4" strips should be cut to 9 1/2" instead, not 9 3/4" as I stated initially
several errors in the cutting measurements!
how frustrating---I just spent 1/2 of a day cutting out all these little pieces and there are several mistakes in the pattern. The 9 1/4" strips should be 9 3/4"; also, the strips should be cut to 3 3/4" wide for the 3 3/4" rectangles--this is unbelievably bad editing
Error in the patteren
There is an error in the strip cutting measurements.
