I am using DMC 3790, a kind of mushroom brown, for these stitcheries. I cut the stitchery blocks 10 x 10". There are 9 all together. They make up Rosalie Quinlan's Little Patchwork Village when complete.
I plan to use Martinique by Three Sisters to complete the quilt so it will be red, brown and cream. I plan to make it a bit bigger than the 48 x 48" so it is of more use.
