Sara, from The Scarlet Quince has a phenominal interview with Ruth Dilts on her blog. They have a lovely selection of Ruth’s charts in their on-line store and have a special going on. It is of Sunrise, pictured above, available as a chart or as a complete kit, based on your selection of Watercolours. It’s on page 3 of the Rith Dilts charts at the shop.
You may know Ruth from her wonderful books, Needlepoint 101 and Needlepoint 202, the best books out there on stitch guides. You may have also stitched some of her wonderful charted canvas designs, available from Rainbow Gallery (find them by looking for needlepoint and the term “Ruth Dilts” on the search page) and on her own site. She has a series I just love of quilt blocks and my favorite of all is her Alexanderia ball, with its lovely plaid (pictured above).
I love the many stitches and techniques (especially Bargello) shown off in so many of her pieces. Every time I look at her designs, I see another one I want to do.
You can get a taste of Ruth’s work in Quilt Square, pictured above, a free needlepoint design from Rainbow Galery.
