The background for the last of the Kirk & Bradley ornaments is this simple Tent Stitch pattern. It’s stitched with Kreinik matte metallic in cream (5555). The pattern is called Berlioz below.You can fill in the open intersections to make a damask.
Next Sunday I’ll start a summer stitch-along with this quilted kitted from Maggie Co.

What do you fill in the intersections with To make a damask? Another type/ color of thread? Thx!
Janet M Perry says
To make a damask, you’ll fill in the open intersections with a thread that is different in texture but the same or close in color.
