I am so glad some quilt patterns are converted into cross stitch. Flea Market Basket not only is a beauty to quilt but also to stitch. It is the new Stitch Along design by Lori Holt from Bee in my Bonnet and presented by The Fat Quarter Shop.
The great news is that it is a yearly Stitch Along which is a fantastic option because this pattern is 183 x 183. It is not a small task to achieve however, by stitching it during the year a portion at a time, it is very achievable without being overwhelming
My color and brad name thread choices are a mixture of DMC (Cotton) and NPI (silk) in grey, pink and metallic in 16 count Antique White Aida from Zweigart. I will be posting the colors as I stitch along.
