The cross-point™ Collection

Pattern: MEDIASCH
A series of stripes top and bottom based on tribal North African rug patterns with a center panel from an historic Persian designs.


Adapted from a stitched pillow in my family collection of Transylvanian Saxon patterns. (See a photo of that pillow in the blog post on Mediasch). In researching the origins of the pattern details, I found a map showing how patterns travelled and were adopted, added to or slightly changed all around the Mediterranian, from North Africa north to Syria, Turkey and other countries along the way into Rumania. Turkish invasions into Saxon Transylvania lasted for several hundred years. Saxon stitchers adaped rug and other fabric patterns to their own cross stitch technique over those same hundred years.
