African Marigold Rug

African Marigold Rug

Needlepoint kit

From: Beth Russell of Designers Forum

Designed by William Morris in 1876 as a cotton chintz, African Marigold was block-printed by Thomas Wardle using natural Prussian blue dye.
This interpretation for needlepoint recaptures the faded look of Morris's preliminary watercolour sketch which is in the collection of the William Morris Gallery at Walthamstow.
Beth Russell took the centre of the lovely watercolour for the cushion and later the whole painting was slightly adapted to turn it from a repeating pattern to an almost symmetrical rug, with a leaf border added.
Cushion CANVAS: 7/8#/in Zweigart Cream Rug Canvas, 48x67" (122x170cm). DESIGN: 42x61" (106.5x155cm). WOOLS: Appleton tapestry. STITCH: Cross.
