Cross Stitch Patterns from Fine Art by Scarlet Quince

Scarlet Quince News
February 2011

Hello stitching friends,

We're excited to announce that we have received licenses for several Diego Rivera paintings, and Krahe (Crow) by Rudi Hurzlmeier, a living German artist. Our first Rivera, Cargador de Flores (The Flower Carrier) is shown below, along with Krahe. We love that goofy old crow and hope you will, too. He was first suggested by Sheri Swope, of Dallas, Texas, and she has received a copy of the pattern in thanks for her suggestion.

Our other new patterns this month are from Gustav Klimt's section of the Stoclet Frieze, The Tree of Life. We have a pattern of the full panel and of the embracing couple on the right, known as Fulfillment. We plan to offer in addition patterns of the woman on the left, Expectation, and the tree in the center. The full panel is a very large pattern and we hope to offer a somewhat smaller version in addition to it.

New tutorial: Backstitching

We've added a tutorial on backstitching! Tutorials are under the Solutions tab, or go here: Scarlet Quince patterns, of course, use no backstitching, but it's useful in signing your work, and many other brands of patterns use it extensively. It's easy to do, and you probably already know how, so we thought there wouldn't be much to say, but it turned into one of our longest tutorials yet. Hope you'll find it useful!

New patterns! Clink any picture for a closer look.
