Description: This design is the floss conversion of the Wool-Cross design "Fruits". A quartet of luscious fruits: red apples, golden pears, fuzzy peaches, and purple plums is united by a golden twisted rope border.
Background Information: I received so many requests for floss versions of the new Wool-Cross designs, that I decided to make the conversions to floss available. Unfortunately, since there are not direct one-to-one conversions between Appleton wool colors and DMC and Anchor floss colors, it was necessary to have all the conversion designs re-stitched, and the charts altered accordingly. There were enough differences to warrant publishing the conversions separately. "Fruit Quartet" is the second published conversion.
Stitching Comments: This design is constructed entirely in whole stitches with no backstitching (?!?!), making is an ideal piece for a relative beginner. The cover model was stitched over-two using 4 strands of floss on 20-count Lugana, but it could also be stitched on a 10-count fabric like Tula, which would give yeild a stitched piece the same size. The design can also be stitched using 2 strands of floss on a finer weave fabric for a smaller finished piece, and it could easily be adapted as a bellpull or as a dramatic horizontal design.
