Undulations II

Stitch a geometric design that mixes Bargello with several stitches!

Undulations II is a geometric design that mixes Bargello with diagonal stitches, box stitches, cross stitches and tied stitches. On this Group Correspondence Course you will stitch one of four quadrants of the design; then rotate the canvas a quarter turn to stitch each of the remaining quadrants.

Undulations II is the remake of a design called Undulations that was taught at a national seminar. The model for the new design is the same as the original design, but Undulations II can be stitched in a variety of color combinations in stranded embroidery cotton or stranded silk or other threads of the stitcher’s choice. Undulations II offers options that allow the stitcher to use motifs, center Bargello patterns, and background stitches that are different from those in the model. If individuals desire, they can use their own original motifs for parts of the design.
