How to Embroider in the Red Quaker Cross Stitch Sampler?
Follow the Red Quaker Sampler Pattern available below.
Overcast the edges of the Aida fabric to prevent raveling. Work the design in cross stitch following the charted pattern. The pattern is given in quadrants due to its size, and it’s best to start at the center of the design and stitch outwards.
Use two strands of floss in your needle for all cross stitch and a single strand for all backstitch.
