This little medallion is stitched entirely in Rainbow Gallery’s Flair in white and three shades of green. This horizontal ogee shape has one or two stitches in each step. It’s very quick to stitch and makes a great fast gift. It’s one of four mini Bargello boxes available free here: Hildegard, Therese, and Nicholas Owen.
It’s surrounded by a Brick Stitch over 2 threads background. I used the same color for the center of the ogee and the background, but you don’t have to.
To start the pattern (above), find the center and place the center stitch. Color by color, fill in the shape and then stitch the background.
This design is made to fit Sudberry’s mini box and is 29 threads square using 18 mesh canvas. To finish the box, trim the needlepoint to two threads beyond the stitching, center behind the glass, put the thicker cardboard behind it and replace the backing. It makes a great quick gift.
