Kreuz & Quer: a complex name for a delicate style

In English it can mean “every which way”, but also “askew”…

even though the meaning of this German saying that best fits the world of cross stitching is certainly “criss-cross”. We have selected the patterns of this brand, created by the Gernan designer Maren Martinez, because they feature that fresh and delicate style we personally like and many of you like, too. Actually, a number of you have been asking us about them for some time 😉

So, here they are!

The most popular subjects of the renowned German cross-stitch style – such as the four seasons, celebrating those little and pleasant things of everyday life, like a walk with a friend, nature’s tenderness with its flowers and animals – are all to be found in the designs from Maren, that often call for the Danish Flora cotton threads from Fru Zippe:

These fibers are perfect for Kreuz & Quer patterns, for they’re very delicate, too, and give any needlework project a lovely, natural touch.

We’re going to upload more and more designs from this German brand, finally “landed” in Casa Cenina, so… stay tuned!
