Based upon a decorative metalwork window screen I saw while walking in San Francisco, this design evokes a classic interlocking pattern seen frequently throughout art history from Roman tile work to Art Deco ornamentation and even as recently as mid-century modern textiles. It’s simple repeating rectangles in striking turquoise and garnet are easy to work and can be adapted into a larger table runner or pillow cover by working more repeats on a larger piece of fabric.


Finished size (including hem): 8 x 9-3/4”

Stitch area: 5-3/4 x 7-1/4”

75 x 97 sts


My high quality kits come with everything you need to make the runner in the photos--26 count 100% cotton Traditional Groundcloth (imported from Greece), DMC floss, full color SOC (symbol-on-chart) pattern with both a close up and a full size schematic so you know how many repeats to work, along with a John James size 24 tapestry needle. The raw edges of the fabric are serged for your convenience, so you can start stitching as soon as you open the kit!
