TYPE: cradle sheet
TECHNIQUE: baldyring, cut work Hedebo
Cradle sheet with ”Baldyring” and cut work Hedebo. The cradle sheet has a centre motif in ”Baldyring”, surrounded by delicate vines of flowers in outline stitch and satin stitch with stiletto holes. The same type of flower vine is used in the motifs on the sides, but here the flower is embroidered in ”reverse cut work Hedebo”. The similarity in style between the flower arrangement motif in the middle and the side motifs raises the question of whether the filling in cut work was originally a ”Baldyring” filling.

Please note
• The frayed fabric in cut work Hedebo takes the form of an eightpointed star. The empty spaces in the star are filled with Danish buttonhole stitching, alternating with Hedebo wheels with small, solid points
• The three small blanket stitch leaves on the two flowers in the furthest corners
• There are only two patterns in the ”Baldyring” filling: scallop with beading loops, and point and scallop with two points. The second pattern is designed in such a way that it forms eight-pointed stars
