JC Embroidery, Punto Antico Tablemat
A classic design inspired by the beautiful tile borders seen in Italianate architecture. The tiles outlined in four-sided stitch are each embellished with Bullion knot designs, enclosed in a Satin stitch and Bullion knot border, and completed with a traditional folded hem with drawn thread ornamentation. This design can be scaled down to a cushion or sachet or up to a table runner or full tablecloth by adding or removing tile repeats, as necessary.
Punto Antico was traditionally worked in monochromatic tones, but the subtle shades of modern coloured linens work wonderfully with the lustre of the Pearl thread and the texture of the Bullion knot tile designs to give this project the classic elegance of yesteryear.
Comprehensive stitch diagrams and construction instructions are included.
