The broad border around this tablecloth is reminiscent of the design of a place mat in the collection. The knotwork has been skilfully drawn onto the cloth before embroidery begins. To ensure the flow of the design, the interlace of the opposing corners is different. It’s so neat.

The borders of the single interlaced strand are highlighted in royal blue blanket stitches. These secure the outer edge of the material so that it can be trimmed right up to the knots of each stitch. Then, unlike the design of the place mat, the strand has been filled with tiny pale blue fly stitches.
