Nova Orbis Tabula - Frederick de Wit
Stitched on 16-count aida

February 22, 2014 “Here's another Nova Orbis Tabula. It took me 2 1/2 yrs. @ 3-4 hrs. a day. I loved working on it and was almost sorry to finish it. It has a double mat. Ivory and maroon. I always tell people where the pattern came from. Your patterns are the very best. Thank you.”

Stitched by Joyce Schueller, Johnson City, Tennessee on 18-count aida

February 17, 2014 “This was the most ambitious project I have done, even though I have been a cross stitcher for many years. I did models for Stoney Creek for several years. I did this piece on 18 count Aida using 2 strands of floss. It took me 504 days of actual stitching. Our son, Robert, has the actual graph now along with the date and time involved when I finished each page. I would stitch for 3 or 4 months and then do some other project for a while before resuming it. I think it took about 2 1/2 years or more, even though I am very fast (and accurate). It is framed with museum glass and to museum standards so it will not fade. I am so happy that our son asked me to do the piece, and I am proud that it is now on permanent display at The University of Memphis where Robert received his degrees. His Dad and I love Robert very much, and there is love in each of the quarter million stitches.”

Stitched by Nona Mitchell, Sun Prairie, Wisconsin on 18-count aida

August 3, 2010 “Finally!! Finished this. Only took three years, but subtract a few weeks for moving and about three months for quilting projects. It came out at 28"x23" (not counting the 3" borders) on 18 count Aida. Now I'm trying to decide what to do next. Something with brighter colors though.”

Stitched by Jean Nelson, Folsom, California on 18-count

July 7, 2010 “My wife, Jean Nelson, just finished the Nova Orbis Tabula. She used 18 count linen. A 1/4 inch maroon border was added for the framers to use as a guideline. The project took almost four years. The completed work is in our computer room across from one of the Chevalier patterns. The next project will be the Japanese work of a Nue being slain, released a few months ago. Your great patterns finish like the originals. A person looking at the Chevalier thought it was an oil painting.”

Stitched by Hyon Sorensen, Killeen, Texas on 14-count white aida

February 20, 2010 “I finished Nova Orbis Tabula - Frederick de Wit on January 31, 2010. It took me 13 months. I used gold metal floss to border. I'm proud of myself and I enjoy to do cross stitching. Thank you for your wonderful patterns.”
