Rosa centifolia Anglica rubra - Pierre-Joseph Redoute
Stitched by Catriona Robinson

October 5, 2020 “This is intended as a seat cover for an antique chair, so I needed to stitch the background. White seemed like a good idea when I started out, but it really wasn't. I underestimated the difficulty of both stitching endless tiny white crosses onto white fabric, and also of keeping it clean for the two years that it took to finish. ”

The Old Cupboard Door - William Michael Harnett
Stitched by Elodium, Burgundy, France on 18-count aida

August 18, 2020 “Great news, I have finished "The Old Cupboard Door". I must say I have been greatly helped by the lockdown in France between mid-March and mid-May. I had to stop all my other activities, and so spent long evenings happily stitching away. Still needs to be cleaned, framed, etc, nevertheless, I thought it was worth sending you a photo or two! I started in October 2014, so I've been slow, but more or less regular – I was slightly quicker at the beginning, carried away by my enthusiasm, I guess, and not as quick in the last third, but never bored.”

Cluny Tapestry Rabbit II
Stitched by Kathryn Renstrom

June 18, 2020 “My first ever attempt at cross stitch. I'm really enjoying it. Very slow, because job and kids take up most of my life but this is two weeks work. I'm still baffled by embroidery floss - how on Earth is it a good idea to have a six ply skein that needs winding, then separating, then re plying? Why doesn't it just come on a bobbin like sewing thread? It is illogical.”

The Moat and Bishop's Palace, Wells Cathedral - Walter Crane
Stitched by Harriet Hart

September 4, 2019 “My latest project, The Moat and Bishop’s Palace, Wells Cathedral—Walter Crane. It took 3+ years but was fun to do. It’s a bit creased as I haven’t washed or pressed it yet. I’ve already started my next project, which will be a gift for my son!”

September 3, 2019 “Thank you for including me in this group! I am learning so many new techniques and it has only been a couple of days! I am working on The Great Wave Off Kanagawa and really have not gotten far. But this group had really inspired me to get back to it. I'm going to baste my page lines next. Then start parking my thread so I don't have to either end the thread, or go further than I am comfortable with. Thank you all so very much!”

From even a little distance, it looks as if it's the real painting.”

Saint Cecilia in Ecstasy - Simon Vouet
Stitched by Jeanette Darmanin, Spring Hill, Florida on 18-count aida

July 5, 2019 “Well St. Cecelia is finally finished and in time to present it to my grandson Fr. Dan Darmanin. Dan was ordained a Catholic priest on June 1, 2019. After five years of stitching, this is the results. She is just beautiful and worth all the time I put into her. You might recall that I told you that my grandson was at that time a seminarian preparing for the priesthood. One day he showed me the picture of St. Cecelia an asked me if I could stitch it because she was the patron saint for organists as also played the organ. Well I immediately thought of the Scarlet Quince Co. Since I had already finished Monet’s Iris, I knew that there was no other company that could do this picture justice. You certainly captured her beautifully. I thank you so much and so does Fr. Dan. He has blessed her and hung her on a wall in his office. Thank you again for making this picture into a chart.”

April 22, 2019 “Have just framed a cross stitch recently completed, purchased the pattern about 14 years ago from you. I was really happy with the frame. I have just ordered another Van Gogh pattern from you, hoping it won't take me so long to complete, I retire at the end of this year so should be able to dedicate a little more time to the 'project'.”


Windflowers - John William Waterhouse
Stitched by Suzanne Goolsby, Castle Rock, Colorado on 32-count linen

March 15, 2019 “With such a detailed and colorful background, the piece automatically--and necessarily-- falls into an English-style stitch pattern. So much so, in fact, that the dress and larger single-color sections require continuing the English stitching throughout. Using the (easier?) American stitches, especially on the linen, will cause the linen threads to roll together and produce visible horizontal lines in the finished tapestry.”

Puddle Jump (smaller) - Alfred Currer
Stitched by Charles Gerton, Lynnwood, Washington on 40-count silk canvas using single strands of DMC floss

January 17, 2019 “Thought you might like to see Puddle Jumper rendered on 40-count silk canvas. Since only 1 thread of DMC cotton floss can be used on 40-count silk, I rewrote the chart so that 1 stitch in the original became 4 stitches in mine, 2 of each color for each symbol, in a box pattern:
L D
D L
where L is the lighter color and D is the darker color of the blended colors. The 9 single color symbols had 4 stitches of the color. Took about 1,900 hours over 2 years.”

The Hunt in the Forest - Paolo Uccello
Stitched by Anna, New Zealand

July 19, 2018 “Framed at last. Must admit it looks pretty good. Your patterns rock! It is also the combination of two colours in one stitch - that puts them above others and makes resulting pictures beautiful. Myself I am busy with several Christmas and birthday presents at the moment ….but…. right after that it is “Duchess de Polignac” by Vigee Le Brun! I don’t think anybody else has done it yet according to your Gallery page, not that it matters really J , I like the picture, it is very romantic.”

It was started BEFORE the stitching app was introduced, so was paper chart all the way. My new project is Hopper's Mansard Roofs using the stitching app. Boy that app makes a big project so much easier.”

Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I - Gustav Klimt
Stitched by Dave Perry, Haute-Vienne, France on 16-count aida

November 25, 2017 “I started this in February 2013 as a retirement project, I had thought it would take about a year. That was before I received the pattern! After finishing the first page I estimated it would take about 5 years to complete, not a bad guess as it is now the end of November 2017--------4 years 10 months and the stitching is finished, now just needs washing, stretching and framing. I have thoroughly enjoyed the complexity of the pattern and am really pleased with its accuracy. I am amazed that via a cross stitch pattern with no back stitching the beauty of her face has been so perfectly represented. My wife is now happy to have a bit more of my time, but she is already wondering what I can find to do with that extra time! Thank you Scarlet Quince for the challenge and the pleasure this has given me.”

Miyamoto Musashi Killing a Giant Nue - Utagawa Kuniyoshi
Stitched by Lorraine Wiener, Rancho Palos Verdes, California on 18-count needlepoint canvas with 2 strands, continental stitch

September 3, 2017 “Two years, nine months to complete Miyamoto Musashi Killing a Giant Nue by Utagawa Kuniyoshi. I have a habit of not completely following directions because I get bored easily. So I added many different colors and thread textures, added stitches and changed the pattern. Originally it had Mr. Kuniyoshi's cartouches on top and bottom. I eliminated them because I figured it was what he had to say, not me. During this project I worked full time as a teacher/librarian at an inner city school, combated a recurrence of Melanoma in my lymph glands, surgery, nearly dying from the immunotherapy administered to me, placed my mother in assisted living then a nursing home and now memory care, cleaned her home and sold it. When the cancer returned I cried. Not because of the return of the cancer but because I worried that I would never complete this project. I am very proud of my completed project.”

Stitched by Alice Williamson, Fort Collins, Colorado on 18-count cream aida

July 31, 2017 “The Gleaners by Jean-Francois Millet is one of two companion pieces to The Angelus, a piece I completed in 2011.

I'm at 24% right now. Thank you again for a wonderful pattern as well as a wonderful program.”

B is for Basket - Jessie Willcox Smith
Stitched by Georgene Birchett on 14-count aida

March 27, 2017 “My Mom is Georgene Birchett- she has completed several of your pieces. She turned 90 on the 26th (March) and just days before completed the very large "B is for Basket". Mom had a stroke several years back and her right side was effected. She was right handed but after her stroke she taught herself to write with her left hand. It's never been perfect but she definitely does not give up easily! She completed the whole piece by Jesee Wilcox Smith with her left hand, which looks amazing. Another hurdle she has been working on overcoming is Macular Degeneration...So not only did she complete the piece using her left hand, but she also did it with one "good" eye.”

June 14, 2016 “This is my first Scarlet Quince pattern "Silver" by Albert Joseph Moore (MOO002). It has taken me just over a year and I stitched it on 16 count fabric. I have loved the entire project and the detail in the pattern is amazing. The picture does not do it justice but walking into the room I smile every time, as it is a stunning work of art. Thank you for the hours of enjoyment this pattern has given me. I have already started my next pattern "Interior of Tintern Abby, Monmouthshire" J.M.W Turner(TUR002).”

February 29, 2016 “I just wanted to show off my work on your pattern Nova Totius Terrarum Orbis Geographica Ac Hydrographica Tabula by Hendrik Hondius. I\’ve been stitching it for the past year. This is the biggest project I\’ve ever done, and I\’m enjoying it tremendously, so much so that I\’ve bought five other patterns from you. I think I\’m set for the next decade!”

Rosa Campanulata alba - Pierre-Joseph Redoute
Stitched by Suzanne Goolsby, Parker, Colorado on 18-count aida

January 26, 2016 “I started it 4 1/2 years ago, when it first appeared on Scarlet Quince, and have finished two larger projects (on "deadline"--for gifts) in the meantime. I should finish sometime this February. I have also mastered pinhole thread attachment and blending; need more parking practice as I still prefer to "color by symbol"; and I will have to figure out railroading with my next project. Love the challenge--it's like Sudoku with a finished product! I have never had anyone ask to post my unfinished work before, so here it is. I'll send it again framed. If you are contemplating your first SQ pattern-as I did for years before I finally jumped--any Redoute is a good choice.”


Heraldic Chivalry - Alphonse Mucha
Stitched by Charmaine Casey, Smith Station, Alabama on 18-count aida

December 30, 2015 “The finished pattern area is 27.5 x 21.3. I did a time study on this project, timing one of each size pattern page. It is a 3681 hour of labor of love. I am so grateful to Scarlet Quince for the amazing pattern. This is an heirloom to be passed down for generations. I am so proud of this picture and can't stop being amazed that I made this.”

Stitched by Jacky Cooper, West Wales, UK on 16-count aida

December 19, 2015 “This has taken nearly two years to complete. I stitched it on 16 count fabric. I really enjoyed doing it but did have a couple of short breaks from stitching it. Nevertheless I am quite pleased with the result. I have now decided to use 18 count fabric, for my next project.”

The Hailstorm - Thomas Hart Benton
Stitched by Cathy Leahy, Havre, Montana on 14-count aida with 4 strands

September 29, 2015 “Here is a picture of my Hailstorm project. It's not a good picture. I'll see if I can do better. My daughter wanted it quite large, so did it on 14 count Aida. Two threads didn't fill it well so I went to four threads (3 would have been good, but obviously not possible with blended colors. It worked beautifully, but I had to be pretty disciplined about not leaving holes to come back to, as it was hard to get all that thread through already full holes. That led to a lot of needle parking and I had to loop the thread through the needles, rather than having tails. But using the four threads (two of each color) sure did ensure that both colors were always visible. It was a challenge and a lot of fun. Thanks again.”

July 3, 2015 “Here are pictures of "Vase with Flowers" by Jan Davidsz de Heem DHE001. I started it on July 26, 2012 and finished in March 2015, over 2 1/2 years of stitching every day. I have included pictures of my progress. It was stitched on Lakeside Linen 32ct Attic Lace. The finished piece is very large, approx. 20" x 29". When I bought the pattern, I thought the background was black (looking at the picture on the website) but it is a dark navy blue.”

The Torn Hat - Thomas Sully
Stitched by Irina Lapko on 26-count canvas with 2 threads and half cross stitch

May 25, 2015 “I would like to share my new embroidery The Torn Hat. I had this early 19th c French frame and wanted to use for the embroidery. So to fit it in I had to embroider on 26-count canvas using half cross stitch and two threads. The size of my embroidery is about 7.5" x 9". I spent two month and three days working on it almost every day. I think this portrait and the frame is a perfect match as they belong to the same period of time.”

Stitched by Denise, New Jersey on 18-count white aida

July 7, 2014 “I began stitching this at the end of May, 2014. I learned to begin a cross stitch project from the center of the chart and have done so here - maybe I'll start in the upper left hand corner on my next SQ chart! I agree with my fellow stitchers in that the depth and richness of the colors are not easily captured in a photograph - it is more beautiful in person.”


Lady with Unicorn: Sense of Taste
Stitched by Judy Arsenault, Prince Edward Island, Canada

May 15, 2014 “This certainly was a challenge. At one point, the left edge got caught in the vacuum and put a couple of holes around the edge near the stitching. I was so upset, I didn't touch it for a few months, but eventually got it mended and finished.” [Note: this is the original UNK008, which has been replaced by UNK008-S.]

This project took more than a year to stitch, but the results were well worth the effort. It's now framed and hanging in my family room where it evokes memories of my grandparents every time I look at it.”

Stitched by Herta-Irena Zorskiene, Vilnius, Lithuania on 18-count aida

March 23, 2014 “Cross stitched by my mother, Herta-Irena Zorskiene, of Vilnius, Lithuania. The finished piece measures 10" x 19" (25.4 cm x 48.3 cm) before framing. It consists of 59,986 stitches on 18 count aida and uses 110 colors. The detail is quite intricate and the colors are absolutely beautiful. It took my mother 5 months to complete this project, working mostly full time on it. By the way, Mom is 84 years old! I can only hope my projects turn out half as well as hers when I'm her age.”

After it is framed, I'm giving it as a gift to my best friend and her husband, who have an organic olive orchard and sell olive oils.

December 11, 2010 “Completed Girl with a Pearl Earring (without background), pattern VER004-B using 18 ct. white aida and 2 strands of floss. It took 9 months and is now ready to be framed. I started the project on black aida cloth but found it was difficult to see the stitching so started over on white and then stitched the background in black floss. I did enlarge the pattern pages and then taped them together because I like to see "the entire picture". This was the first time I stitched in horizontal rows instead of vertical and was amazed to find I like it better. Love your patterns and now have the fun of choosing the next one!”

Fashion Shop - August Macke
Stitched by Kathy Steiglitz, Virginia on 18-count aida

August 24, 2012 “I started the Fashion Shop by Macke and had finished 3 panels when I realized that I had cut the material too short. We discussed adding some material but that there would be a bump. That was July 2009 and I didn't pick it up again, to start all over until January of 2011. We had purchased a Lazy Boy chair that is a little art deco and I knew that that cross stitch was the perfect pattern for a pillow for that chair. Since I decided on an actual place for the pillow I started it up again. It was pretty discouraging to do the first 3 panels all over again, but I did. Here's the great pillow. It cost $85. After my fiasco of material being too short, it took me 18 months to complete.”

February 21, 2012 “Here is my completed Sunrise in Yosemite by Albert Bierstadt (Your BIE001). It took 35 months to complete on 18-count white Aida. From a distance most people think it's a painting. I use stitching as my principal form of relaxing after a long day staring at a computer monitor. Stitching forces you to clear your mind and focus on reading the chart and counting. My grandmother taught me, and I understand now why she enjoyed it so much.”

I think it looks amazing, and I am so glad I decided to stitch this work of art. Thank you for offering this pattern! Now I can turn my attention to the other two patterns I am working on, Take the Fair Face of Woman by Sophie Anderson, and Sense of Hearing, one of the Lady and the Unicorn patterns. Hopefully, I will be sending pics of my progress on these sometime soon. So much to do, so little time!”

Stitched by Kathy Sebesta, Winchester, Kentucky on 32-count black Belfast linen over 2

November 8, 2011 “Here's the final. My daughter got it at her wedding last weekend and everyone was stunned. I always frame behind non-glare glass - I find that that glass blurs the stitches just the tiniest bit so that the cross-stitch looks like a painting or a photo. Not one person there realized it was sewn. And of course the framing made it extra-spectacular. Anyway, thanx for making the pattern available, and for allowing me to make such a special gift.”

Apples in a Tin Pail - Levi Wells Prentice
Stitched by Robert Goleman, Fort Bragg, California on 18-count ivory aida

November 8, 2011 “I wanted to send you a photo of my first Scarlet Quince pattern completed (Apples in a Tin Pail by Levi Wells Prentice). Stitching began on September 29, 2010, and was finished on November 5, 2011 - working an average of 2 hours a day. The detail is incredible - especially the reflection in the tin pail. I loved working on it, and can't wait to begin the next one (Violin and Music by William M. Harnett) to hang above my piano when it's completed. Thanks again for your fabulous patterns and your wonderful website! I'll send you an updated photo of the Apples in a Tin Pail once it's framed.

I really enjoy doing these masterpieces.”


The Promise - Morgan Weistling
Stitched by Laraine Harris, Carlsbad, New Mexico on 18-count aida

It took me 2,185 hours to do this one. The next time I am going to us 26 needle instead of 24. I am trying a smaill project on 32 evenweave. If it doesn't drive me completely crazy I will do my next big project on 32 with size 26 needle. My next project is going to be Kissing the Face of God. I really like Morgan Weistling's work.”

Your wonderful patterns and the ability to work on something other than the big 4 listed above just excites me to no end. The biggest problem I have is deciding which piece to do next!”

April 26, 2010 “Thought you might like to see the latest work, Rosa Eglanteria. This was stitched on 32 Count Belfast linen. This was done in double quick time for a Golden Wedding present. Really had to put the hours into this to get it finished in time. Often putting in 4-6 hours a day. Again really pleased with the finished result. I am just about to start on the Sunflower seen from the back & I am sure that I will be just as pleased with this.”

Basket and Vase of Flowers - Cornelis Van Spaendonck
Stitched by Pilar, Salamanca, Spain on 18-count ivory aida

April 17, 2010 “Sending 2 final photos of my first SQ, I have been 3 years in finishing it, have all the crossed way photographed, enclosed a great mistake for confusion of threads that took me one month in fixing ....... it is more difficult to undo that to embroider!!!!!! This photo shows it like it is nowadays. Now I have begun to embroider THE KISS by Francesco Hayez.”

The Virgin in Prayer - Sassoferrato
Stitched by Nancy Fritsche, Monroe, Louisiana on 18-count fiddler cloth

April 17, 2010 “I am sending two copies of the latest of your patterns I have finished. I started this on Feb. 15, right after breast cancer surgery, and finished all that I intended to complete yesterday, April 16. I decided to allow the pattern to sort-of fade out on the bottom instead of being solid all across. I used 18 count fiddler cloth and stitched a square of gold thread cross stitches and one square of half-cross stitches around her head to offer some contrast. I have three more patterns that I intend to stitch. Your products offer such satisfaction at the conclusion of the stitching. Thank you so much. ”

Anemones and Lilacs in a Blue Vase - Odilon Redon
Stitched by Hallie Wake, Pleasanton, California on 18-count aida

February 21, 2010 “I made Anemones and Lilacs in a Blue Vase by Odilon Redon into a pillow, using 18 count Aida. I used the sewing method and it took me about four months of stitching about 4-5 hours a day. (The "sewing method" is when you make the needle go down and back up in one motion so that your sewing hand stays on top of the fabric; and the "stabbing method" (not the most pleasant name!) is when you push the needle to the back, bring your hand around to the back to pull it through, then push the needle up to the front again in a separate motion. I have always used the sewing method whenever possible, i.e. when there are several stitches of the same color close together. It's twice as fast when I can keep my hand on top and go down and up in one stitch. But I guess you can't do that when you have your work on a frame since you need to bend the fabric enough to get the needle through. I was worried that not using a frame would mean the final product would come out lumpy but it doesn't, especially when it is put into a decorative frame at the end. I hold a single dowel in my left hand with the left edge of the Aida fabric wrapped around it while I sew with my right hand from right to left.)”

Jacob and Rachel - William Dyce
Stitched by Carol Tutt, Texas on 14-count cream aida

December 2, 2009 “I worked on this piece for 4-1/2 years and kept visualizing what it was going to look like on the wall in my living room above an antique sideboard. Faith became sight today -- it now hangs on my wall and is exquisitely beautiful. I used cream colored 14 ct. aida and enjoyed every stitch I took. I have now started another of your patterns -- this one for a dear friend.”

Gentleman Writing a Letter - Gabriel Metsu
Stitched by JoAnne Nantz, JoAnne Nantz Needleworks & Framing, Holiday, Florida on 28-count Jobelan Pewter with 2 strands of floss, over 2

September 16, 2009 “I used a 28ct. Jobelan Pewter. I stitched over two! Reason being, (1) I have cataracts now and for the past two years they have been getting worse, plus I knew it was going to be hanging up high in the shop for a long time before I bring him home. (I have a big Dutch theme throughout most of the living areas in my home, so he will fit in nicely.) (2) Being that I operate a stitch shop, I needed to prove to some "doubting thomases" that they can stitch ANY pattern on ANY count, etc., etc. It took me 32 months to complete, BUT I stitched about 15 other assorted designs for displays in my shop during this period of time. In addition to all the stitching I do, I also do all the framing for me and the shop - all custom framing- so, I am a busy bee, but I usually am able to put at least 4-7 hours ea. day (and night!! ha!) to do stitching. My email is nantzjm at msn.com -- I never mind answering questions.” (original picture had a light fixture reflected in it -- this is an update without the reflection -- SQ)


Miranda - Sir Frank Dicksee
Stitched by Heather Aquilino, Northern Virginia on 18-count aida

October 11, 2009 “This is the first Scarlet Quince pattern I have finished, and I have never been happier with my finished piece. The patterns are easy to follow and stunning in their detail. It is very important that you continue stitching the pattern onto the next page, and do not stitch one page at a time. I did not realize this until I saw my finished piece and there were page lines I cannot get out, no matter how many times I ironed it. I chose a dark wooden frame, because it reminded me the wooden railings of a ship. I am working on Sloop by Winslow Homer next and cannot wait to see how it turns out.”

“I started The Night Café by Vincent Van Gogh 5 months ago. I am stitching on Aida 22 count, over 2, single stitched. The completed size will be 44 X 37 inches. As they say -- Roman was not built in a day and neither will this be stitched in a day. It will more than likely take 5 years.”

Stitched by Martha Brown, Coral Springs, Florida on 18-count aida

“This is the finished John Singer Sargent’s Spanish Fountain (10" x 15"). This was done on 18 count aida, which is what I usually use when the whole picture is stitched. Now I’m working on "The Horse Fair" by Rosa Bonheur. You have so many beautiful charts it’s very hard to choose what to work on next!”


Stitching the Standard - Edmund Blair-Leighton
Stitched by Kate Ash, Cheshire, England on 18-count aida

“I don’t get much opportunity to stitch at the moment, which is why this pattern seems to be taking me so long to complete. It was given to me as a Christmas present last year and, one year on, I thought you might be interested in seeing its progress. It’s an absolutely beautiful pattern, which I am thoroughly enjoying spending time on.”
