Trillium Coaster

posted in: Plastic Canvas | 0

The white trillium has been the provincial flower of Ontario since 1937.

The name ‘trillium’ comes from the Latin for ‘three’. The plant has large, often white, three-petaled flowers above three broad bracts that look like leaves. They are members of the lily family.

A few years ago when I was active in Girl Guides I designed this pattern for a trillium to stitch into a coaster made with plastic canvas and yarn.

Cut a piece of 7 count plastic canvas 30 holes by 30 holes.

Stitch the trillium in white with green leaves, add 3 yellow french knots in the center.

The background can be done in any colour that you choose.

For the backing add another piece of plastic canvas and stitch together. Felt can also be added for the back of the coaster.

The pattern could also be made up on 10 count canvas using floss.
