This compelling design originates in a stunning tablecloth shared with Krista, the founder and designer of Avlea Folk Embroidery. Her friend’s mother, Despina, stitched this design for her prika, a collection of embroidered tablecloths, cushion covers, and other handmade textiles that family members gift to a Greek bride so she can beautify her new home, a tradition which dates back centuries in Greece.

Featuring a vibrant colorway of garnet, coral, blue, ecru, and golden olive that is just as stylish today as it was 25 years ago when Despina originally stitched it, the stylized anemone motif is further ornamented by a wonderful use of backstitches to throw the bright colors into high relief. A charming little zigzag pattern and chevron bands complete the design.

Stitch count: 67 x 74/1822 sts/2280 backsts
Finished size: 6x8 inches (including hem)

Avlea’s high quality kits come with everything you need to make the embroidery in the photos--26 count 100% cotton Traditional Groundcloth (imported from Greece), DMC floss, full color SOC (symbol-on-chart) pattern, along with a John James size 24 tapestry needle. The raw edges of the fabric are serged for your convenience, so you can start stitching as soon as you open the kit!
