Blackwork Acorn Pattern


Motif Blackwork Acorn
Originally uploaded by Kitty And Me.
It's a lovely Autumn day here in Northern Illinois. Sunny, and relatively warm outside! The orange and yellow leaves are falling off the trees now and it's time to cut my garden back. I'll be doing that this weekend.

I haven't yet completed my Thanksgiving 2 doorknocker so I thought for today, my readers might enjoy motif that can be used on crazyquilts.

This blackwork acorn can be stitched directly on your quilt using waste canvas or stitch it on cross stitch fabric and sew it into your foundation.

You can stitch this with whatever thread colors you like. I would probably use a dark brown for the top and a light brown for bottom. I would do the outline with 2 strands of embroidery floss and then the fill-in blackwork with 1 strand.

The design is 32 stitches wide by 38 stitch high. 14 count = 2 1/4 X 2 5/8 inches.

Enjoy!

Ah, beautiful as ever. :)

For some reason I see this stitched with gold (one strand for acorn, two strands for "base") on black.

Must...resist...temptation... *giggles*

Pam,

Everyone seems to be in withdrawals, so I'm putting some motifs up on my website. Only some may be useful, but I think the Elizabethan flowers are very nice.

Cheers,
Laren

An acorn is just perfect for blackwork. Excellent desgin Pam! I need to get off my duff and do some blackwork, but I am a "moody" stitcher and have not gotten all my juju back after having my classes cancelled. But this goes into my to do pile!
