This graceful lattice design originates in a cushion cover made in the Ionian islands in the 18th century. Its beautiful rhythmic effect is created by working all the rows of arrows in one direction in the same color, but then working the rows in the opposite direction in alternating shades of blue and green. While the original palette featured bright shades, I have deepened the colorway for a more modern look and added a motif worked in backstitches in the center sections to echo the drawn thread work of the original textile.
