Counted cross stitch chart "Pascha Basket cover" with a note from Krista West:
"An intricate central stylized cross is outlined with a lovely border featuring checkerboard detailing and two cross motifs. The central cross employs backstitches to add intricacy and interest. Worked in the traditional bright red, this design is shown worked as for a Pascha (Easter) basket cover, a tradition in Orthodox Christian lands in which families bring a basket of celebratory foods to be blessed and shared following the midnight Resurrection service. Pascha basket covers are treasured heirlooms in many families and this beautiful design is lovely worked for your family or as a gift."
