Hearts & Flower Crosses

I needed some distraction from tatting hanky edgings. This is Julie Patterson's cross pattern. The pattern link is from Georgia's site here. Recently I saw other patterns from Julie Patterson on Liyarra's blog. I think her patterns are very interesting and am wondering how to purchase Julie's tatting patterns/books.

I am comparing the cross sizes with the different threads. From left, Lizbeth Wildflower Garden # 154 Size 80 (cross measures 2.5 by 2 inches), Lizbeth Easter Eggs #159 Size 40 (cross measures 3 by 2.5 inches) and Perle Cotton Size 8 (sorry no label; measures 4 by 3 inches).


  1. Ooooh! Fabulously beautiful crosses! :)

  2. ..those are beautiful.
    I like them all!

  3. Julie's books are out of print - self published - but no one seems to be in touch with her or Toni Storer these days. Both were excellent Australian designers.

  4. Beautiful crosses, I love the orange one,

  5. It is easy and fast to tat.

    Thank you to Gina and Fox for the info on Julie Patterson's patterns.
