Punto Antico - Walled Garden Tablemat
A classic design inspired by the stunning walled gardens seen in Italianate architecture. The garden walls, worked in four-sided stitch, enclose a drawn thread Lily Pond motif, and the gardens are embellished with a simple but effective repeating floral motif, and completed with a traditional folded hem with drawn thread ornamentation. This design can be easily adapted to a cushion or extended for a table runner or full tablecloth by adding or removing garden repeats, as necessary.
Punto Antico was traditionally worked in monochromatic tones, but the subtle shades of modern coloured linens work wonderfully with the lustre of the Pearl thread and the texture of the Bullion knot embellishments to give this project the classic elegance of yesteryear.
Comprehensive stitch diagrams and construction instructions are included.
