Diamond in A Square

Filed under: ANG Correspondence Courses, Diamond in a Square by Pat Mazu

I’ve been exploring shading with my ANG chapter and decided I had to take Patricia Mazu’s Diamond in A Square which is being offered through ANG’s Correspondence Courses (http://www.needlepoint.org/CorrClasses/classes/diamond-square.php). Pat describes it perfectly as an adventure in creating an overdyed thread effect.

What I really like is learning how to control the color as it moves through a stitch pattern. I knew that I’d have to do her pattern & then try it on my own design to see if I really understood it. I did have to modify her design slightly to fit into bookends. These make a wonderful opportunity to create a companion piece with my design. The first design is done! And, I’ve begun the next.

It looks really good. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing your variations. Wish I had thought of them!
