African Tiles is a wonderful design to stitch with its addictive patchwork squares and zigzag border. The strong colours are very forgiving for any lapses of tension. African Tiles is a relaxing project for anyone with tapestry experience, and is also a good design for an adult beginner who will find stitching the design one ’tile’ at a time very encouraging. The design grows very quickly!
African Tiles looks wonderful made into a cushion, or used as the front of a tapestry bag.

Choosing a Tapestry Frame
A tapestry frame is not essential, but will help to prevent your work going out of shape and makes it easy to resume stitching the next day or after a break. We stock a good range of British made no-sew tapestry clip frames which only take a few minutes to assemble. As the canvas is attached by easy clips, the frames allow you to switch between projects if necessary.
For African Tiles, we recommend either a CF219, CF2112, CF249 or a CF2412 frame. Choose the CF249 or CF2412 if you may stitch larger designs in the future. You’ll manage with a CF189 or CF1812 if you trim the right hand side of the canvas down slightly, near the colour blocks.
