“Tumbling Blocks have a long history in the grammar of ornament, dating as far back as Ancient Greece, when the pattern appeared as a mosaic floor design. It may have been introduced into quilt-making in the 1850s. Also known as cube work, the stunning optical results of floating, stacked, and overall cubic arrangements are achieved through the distribution of color and light and dark pieces.”

The reason why we choose to kit this design with Zweigart Penelope antique brown canvas, is because you don’t need to embroider the background! The canvas is so beautiful that the end result looks amazing as it is :)

Please note that this is a counted needlepoint (or cross-stitch) canvas, so you don’t have the design printed but rather a charted design pattern to guide you when stitching.

You can choose from two available versions of this design:

  • Version 1: Blue & Pink
  • Version 2: Brown & Green

 

What is included:

If you buy only the Digital Pattern:

  • PDF with the Charted Designs, containing:
    • Printable patterns for the 2 versions: Blue & Pink + Brown & Green
    • Materials list
    • How to start instructions
    • Color guides and quantities
    • Information about design, canvas mesh and needle size
    • Finishing tips
  • PDF of our Needlepoint booklet with instructions on starting needlepoint, tips for selecting needlepoint stitches, and a library of favorite stitches

 

  • Original artwork printed in premium Zweigart canvas, with edges sewed with cotton bias tape
  • 2 tapestry needles
  • Flyer with the color threads mapping so you can start stitching quickly. 
  • Threads with enough quantity to stitch with the continental tent stitch (more information in the FAQ's; if you need more thread, leave a note at checkout - we offer you all the thread needed without extra cost!)
  • Needlepoint booklet with instructions on starting needlepoint, tips for selecting needlepoint stitches, and a library of favorite stitches
  • Our bespoke packaging, portable and sustainable & perfect for gifting.

When you buy the “Printed canvas only” option, all the above is included except the threads, and just a single needle. It’s the perfect option if you want to create your own color variation, or re-use threads and yarn you might have at home!

  • Learn how to count your chart/canvas: Always think of the squares as intersections in your needlepoint canvas, instead of the actual holes of the canvas.
  • Find the center: To find the center of the canvas and the chart, you can either fold them in 4, or you can use a ruler to cross out the center, by tracing the diagonals.
  • Start in the middle, or count to the area where you want to start: Starting in the center is the easiest way to begin stitching with a needlepoint chart, because it's your strongest point of reference.
  • Understand the color map: Using the color map you can match each square with the labeled color.

SINGLE PACKAGING FOR MULTIPLE ITEMS:

To be more sustainable, we consciously try to reduce the amount of materials used in packaging.

When buying more than one kit or canvas, we will always try to fit them into a single packaging tube or box that best fits their size, and as they are for the same person we will only include 1 printed needlepoint booklet.

However, if you add a gift message at checkout, select the gift wrapping option, or let us know in advance that you are buying a gift, we make sure that all kits are shipped in individual packaging.
