The wall hanging is made by taking inspiration from Gujarati Embroidery, which is very colourful and the skill of embroiderer lies in mixing different colours together. The hanging comprises of 3 motifs- 1 in center, 1 in each of the four corners and 1 in the remaining blocks. The whole field is divided into 9 squares using herring bone stitch and a stone at each intersection. Below are the closeups of each motif.

The stitches used are closed herringbone, satin, chain, open chain or square chain and button hole stitches.
In my next post I will give an idea about different embroideries from Gujarat.
