More on the history of our new MEDIASCH PATTERN
Adapted from a stitched pillow in my family collection of Transylvanian Saxon patterns. In researching the origins of the pattern details, I found a map showing how patterns traveled and were adopted, added to or slightly changed all around the Mediterranian, from North Africa north to Syria, Turkey and other countries along the way into Romania. Turkish invasions into Saxon Transylvania lasted for several hundred years. Saxon stitchers adapted rug and other fabric patterns to their own cross stitch technique over those same hundreds of years. I previously wrote about that subject on the blog post on Oriental rugs preserved in Transylvanian churches. (Medias or Mediasch – both spellings are shown on maps)
