Memling is a very precise geometrical needlepoint design which allows for no improvisation. The Six central Motifs handsomely repeat and are bordered by a frame - which is included in the design. Ideal as a Needlepoint Rug - Headboard or Bench Cover.
Canvas is cut 27.6 x 39 inches - ( 70 x 100 cm. ) - Copyright 1995 Jan Voich
The success of Memling Needlepoint is proven by the centuries of its reproduction throughout over 2000 years of history. Commencing in the Armenian era of Urartu and seen in Hellenistic Mosaics - as well as repetitions evolving within the Roman and early Christian Arts.
The colors are dominated by a strong wine outlining the pale central motifs and repeating throughout the borders. The ecru becomes a pale yellow when combined with the mint green and the three shades of lavender and damson add the final combination of light modern decoration. A touch of baby blue was added to the center crosses and in the border.
A Piano Bench cover usually measures 14 x 30 inches x 1 inch thick. The exception is a Grand Piano Bench Cover which is 35 inches long. This Needlepoint Patterns Design may be fit to these dimensions by folding the three inch side borders down and under.
Since we provide plenty of extra canvas the length should be elongated to 35 inches adding a strip of 3 1/2 inches ( to both ends ). The six central patterns will fit perfectly and the border will continue along the sides.
Vase of Flowers by Hans Memling c. 1485
Shown above is a reproduction of the Original painting titled Vase of Flowers c. 1485 by Hans Memling.
We took the Original Tapestry - out of this Hans Memling Painting c. 1485 and carefully prepared it for needlepoint. This was a very long and often frustrating process - yet after five years - the Complete Collection has proven to be very well accepted by all.
