15 Sided Biscornu - Part 1

This is how my first square looks with my colour choices.

I started stitching my 15 squares this morning.  Each being 20 x 20 backstitches with an inch between each one.
(8 of the 15 squares are shown in the photo).

I was originally going to do all my backstitching
with 370 DMC, but after I completed all my cross stitch with SNC 273, I didn't like the look of the 370 DMC.  I choose an alternate, 3740 DMC, for the backstitching within the design, but will still use 370 DMC for my square outlines.

It includes the first pattern and the Getting Started instructions.


  1. Oh I'm so happy to find your pattern. I saved the first 5 couple years ago and finally getting around to starting it. It is a beautiful pattern.
    Thank you so much for your generous share.

  2. If I don't have beads do you think it would look ok to use a stitch to fill those?
