Announcing the Prim and Proper Stitch Along!

Lori Holt’s hit Prim and Proper quilt was such a success that we couldn’t resist continuing the fun with a Stitch Along! This precious cross stitch pattern by Bee in my Bonnet has vibrant colors and stitches that transport us back to a time where things were handmade and homegrown with love and care. Sew don’t wait… Join us next month for the Prim and Proper Stitch Along with Lori Holt!

Kimberly will be stitching a section each week for 5 weeks from March 3 to March 31, 2021. She’ll be stitching with the Prim AuriFloss Thread Box on Sand Castle 14 Count Jobelan Aida. Prim and Proper is also available as a quilt kit if you want to stitch up both projects!

The Prim and Proper Cross Stitch Pattern comes with full-color instructions, diagrams, and a supply list including suggested DMC and AuriFloss colors. It is printed on durable 11” x 17” cardstock so you will be able to store this pattern easily.

The cross stitch is designed to work on 25 count cloth and finishes at 8.5” x 10.75”. Lori finished this stitch in the 8 x 10 Wood Wall Frame from Hobby Lobby painted with Lori Holt’s Farm Girl Chalky Chicks Paint in Picket Fence, Prim fabric collection and Jazzberry Jam Large Vintage Trim by Lori Holt.

  1. Hey.
    So a wonderful pattern, and I would like to stitch it together with the others, but I cant find the pattern as a PDF. I live in Denmark and the shipping with mail will take long time.
    It is possible to get the pattern as a PDF.
