This chapter is called Allover Stitches and includes some lovely stitch patterns including the stitch I'm featuring today, Quilted Cross Stitch. As you can see from the photo above, the stitch inspired Anna to make a whole rainbow of coasters!
The other side of the work is completely different, with an interesting broken rib texture that sits nicely flat. The fabric is firm and textural with a lovely contemporary feel. The stitch is a great choice for coasters as it is nicely insulating, and would also be perfect for table mats or a plant pot stand too.
I hope you've enjoyed this series of blogposts and that you'll find lots of inspiration for your own design work in the pages of the book.
I hope you have a very happy holiday season. I'll be back in the New Year!
Until then – Happy Knitting!
