Materials: Cashmere, cambric muslin, or
linen; Messrs. Walter Evans and Co.'s embroidery cotton No. 4.
This is an embroidery-pattern for a
woollen or silk quilted counterpane. Such counterpanes generally have
a lining which is turned back on the right side, and buttoned down at
the point of each scallop. The pattern is a quilted counterpane of
scarlet cashmere; the lining is of fine linen. Before embroidering it,
make the points for the corners. The embroidery is worked in
button-hole stitch, overcast, satin, and ladder stitch. It can also be
worked on fine cambric or muslin, and then the embroidered pattern
sewn on the piece of linen which forms the cover on the wrong side.
Make the button-holes as seen on illustration, and sew on
mother-of-pearl or china buttons.
