Filling Pattern – No. 552

Filling Pattern – No. 552

category: Limet-Filling pattern
linen used: 13.5/cm thread count
threads used: coton à broder No. 20
stitches used: Satin and Rose stitches
center: intersection of withdrawn thread lines (in other shapes or motifs longitudinal axis = withdrawn thread line)
one pattern segment: 20 fabric threads

This pattern for larger motifs can be used for shapes both on the straight of grain and shapes on the bias.

The filling pattern shown here is a practice exercise only. You can see it used in a shape at the end of this article.

First, establish a Limet grid with an intersection of withdrawn thread lines at the center by alternately cutting 1, leaving 3, vertically and horizontally.

Mark around the center point by working Satin stitch bars around an area of 4 X 4 squares (the center point situated directly in center).

Continue working Satin stitch bars over one square (3 threads) in the width and 4 squares (12 stitches) in the length in a stair-step manner

until the entire shape is filled.

Work squares consisting of 8 Rose stitches in straight rows inside each Satin stitch grid area.

Ensure that the center holes are kept well defined and open.

Continue working squares of 8 Rose stitches until the entire shape is filled.

Remember that the Limet grid is prepared differently for shapes positioned on the bias. Please refer to this article.

and then continue in the established way.

The Hare and the Hedgehog

In Germany Easter is, among other things, associated with the Easter bunny, who hides the Easter eggs in the nest for the children.

Somehow this picture also reminds me of our current pandemic situation.

The Race between the Hare and the Hedgehog

So I chose this section from the embroidered fairytale-like wall hanging by Rosemarie Landsiedel-Eicken, to wish you

Happy Easter!

She was it, giving the inspiration for the Global Schwalm Sampler. In one of my future articles I will show details of the sampler which was shown in total then.

Rosemarie Landsiedel-Eicken embroidered different wall hangings, amongst others also a fairy-tale like one including the representation of The Hare and the Hedgehod. May be, I can show more details of this sampler in the future.

Easter Eggs Embroidered with Schwalm Whitework Motifs (2)

An eye-catching Easter decoration is made with plastic eggs covered with linen embroidered with Schwalm motifs.

It doesn’t matter if one uses spring-like colours,

shades of one tone,

or only one colour.

Nice motifs in the perfect size can be found in 24 small Designs.
Detailed instructions and 60 designs for working those eggs can be found in Embroidered Easter Eggs.

If one wants to embroider somewhat larger eggs (e.g., goose eggs), appropriate designs can be found in Easter Eggs.

Documentation: Global Schwalm Sampler

When the Global Schwalm Sampler goes on tour – the first agreements are already in progress – the viewer should be given the opportunity to obtain background information. Therefore, I have created a detailed bilingual English-German report that is laminated and bound to accompany the cloth.

An overall picture with background lighting gives an initial view of the impressive project, and a numbered graph allows the viewer to more easily find the individual embroideries.

A short history of the Global Schwalm Sampler follows

as well as a list of the number of embroiderers and the submitted contributions of the respective nations.

After this brief introduction, there are 142 pages where one can see and read details of the individual contributions.

All the detailed images have been professionally edited. And the text, the same as the text originally posted on my website, has been enriched by many more detailed images of the finished sampler.

On the last two pages there is a short explanation of how the individual embroideries were combined to create a large sampler.

The detailed images of the embroidery are excellent after being professionally processed. You can clearly see every stitch.

I have therefore decided to make this publication accessible to all interested embroiderers! This book opens up a treasure trove of ideas that have been put into practice and embroideries that have come to fruition. The effect of individual filling patterns in different motifs can be compared wonderfully.

A quality book consisting of a total of 146 pages with 485 images must have a price. The printed version costs €39 (including 7% sales tax, so it is €36.45 outside the EU). But there is also a downloadable version that consists of, due to the file size, a total of 7 PDF documents. It can be purchased for €20 (including 7% sales tax, so it is €18.69 outside the EU).

The weight is more than 500 g, so the shipping costs are also higher – within the EU they are €7.49 without a tracking number and €10 with a tracking number. Outside the EU the shipping is €9 without a tracking number and €11.35 with a tracking number.

All those involved in the Global Schwalm Sampler receive a special discount of 20% on the purchase price as an extra “thank you”.
