I have started my Athenian Palmette and am wondering why it is off center by 4.5"?
That's because the fabric is actually larger than 18x18". When they printed the fabric they centered the motifs and that left an approx 3 selvedge on one side. Instead of trimming that off, I left it so you'd have an area to practice stitches if you'd like.
Thank you. I thought I had read that somewhere. It is so much fun to stitch. Ordered the other two and looking forward to them.
