The Beatitudes

The Beatitudes

The Beatitudes

An inspiration for so many, and endless possibilities with a needle and thread - this is my interpretation.

I've stitched all of the verses onto a single piece of silk gauze - but wouldn't this be wonderful on a lovely piece of fabric? Lots and lots of options.

In addition, charts are provided for the individual verses if you want to select just some of your favorites - create bowl fillers, pin cushions or other smalls. I've compiled all of these into a book of the verses - general guidelines for finishing in the book format are included.

The Beatitudes is published in three parts. You will need all three parts to complete the entire piece.

Stitch count:

229 x 212
(Silk gauze is not included; a cut of at least 10" square is suggested.)


Weeks Dye Works: Baked Apple, Charcoal, Chestnut, Deep Sea, Iris, Mocha, Monkey Grass, Mulberry, Peach Fuzz, Schneckley, Seaweed, Twilight, White Lightning, Whitewash
Not all colors are used in all verses.

In the silk gauze model, I used the following DMC colors to fill in the background areas:
06, 613, 3032, 3033, 3782, 3864

Stitching Level:

The word "beatitudes" is misspelled in the bottom border band of the overall design. Please refer to this PDF chart for the correction.
