What a great way to practice your free motion stitching. This fire pattern is from the McCall’s Needle Thread Art Magazine Volume IV 1977.The colours are rich and depict the components of a fire well. This fire would look great on a postcard or in a nighttime waterfront landscape as a foreground focus.



  1. This pattern is fabulous! I could see it as a large framed art piece over a fireplace….make those squares in the pattern each 2″ big for a fabulous 24″ X 28″ piece done in crewel yarns on a brown linen or burlap background…then framed it up in a simple black or walnut frame.

  2. That is almost exactly what McCall’s did with it, but in the muted and dark vintage colours
