Hollyhock House Window: A Frank Lloyd Wright adapted design

Project: Hollyhock House Window

Designer:  Inspired by a design of Frank Lloyd Wright, architect
(Heartland House Designs)

Type of needlework: Cross Stitch

Comments: I have always been very interested in architecture and when in Chicago on a trip, we visited some of the houses that have been built by Frank Lloyd Wright. In the visitor center I saw a few charts, all cross stitch, and purchased a couple of them. So far I have only stitched this one and given it to my husband to put in his office.

According to the chart, this asymmetrical design of the window can be used either vertically or horizontally. I decided to hang it vertically.
