What materials did you use? Belfast 32 count linen in Antique White, DMC floss, Mill Hill Petite beads and Kreinik Silver Cord. Hand made twisted cord and tassel.

What are you most proud of? Finishing it in time... nothing like a bit of pressure! I got the colours right too, yay. There are 260+ tiny beads on this!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Sweetheart Tree patterns look deceptively simple, but boy does Sandie pack a heap of detail in a small space! Not for the beginner but don't let that put you off making this for a special bride and groom.

Pam, it's lovely! Tiny, tiny stitches and the beading! WOW! I have never heard of a quadrielle or the custom of giving horseshoes (for luck, I assume). How big is this? I have a feeling I'll be super impressed that there is so much stitching in a small space!

ooops, see my reply above... obviously not fully awake yet LOL!

Thanks Darns! Oh you don't give horseshoes for luck??? I guess it must be an English custom then? They're not real ones, they're usually made of satin with lace etc added and given by young kiddies. As for this quadrielle, each side is 2"sq... I made mine slightly smaller than the original. It would make lovely Xmas decorations too... could even go smaller... not this year tho! ;-)

oh! oh! oh! I have never seen something so charming in my life! Firstly, your craftsmanship is exquisite! I do counted thread myself and have never come across a quadrille. I would dearly like to make one for my daughter's wedding. Would you please let me know where to buy the pattern? I live in the US. I found you...and Craftsy through Pinterest and am thrilled to have seen your lovely wedding gift! kindest regards, Lucia Hsu
