Cushion inspired by a tapestry embroidered by Marie-Antoinette and Mme Élisabeth.

This is not a fabric, but a detail from a tapestry sewn in petit point by Marie-Antoinette and Madame Élisabeth (the youngest sister of Louis XVI).
Sewn in fragments, first in the Tuileries prison and later at the Temple prison (from June 1791 to August 1792), the Duchess of Angoulême, during the reign of LouisXVIII, assembled all the pieces and added a border.
As far as I know, this tapestry is not visible in the Palace of Versailles, but it was part of an exhibition at the nearby Domaine of Madame Élisabeth in 2013 (just a stone’s throw away from the Palace). 

This chart is taken from our spectacular pattern dedicated to Marie-Antoinette.
The two embroideries depicting the Versailles Palace and Marie-Antoinette are the sixth in the “Museums and Heritage” collection.
Size of motif: 347 stitches wide by 266 stitches high.
When embroidered on 12 count (per cm) linen, the finished project measures 57.8 x 44.3cm.
Size of finished cushion: 57.8 x 44.3cm.
