Quilting Bee Continued
In addition to Fire and Ice I am staying on track with my online stitch notebook class. I am actually ahead of schedule as I have a stitching weekend to attend with the Tucson ANG group coming up.
Stitch 3: Framed Reversed Scotch. It creates a checkerboard effect and was very easy to stitch. I liked the overdye effect but will try it in the future without that effect.
Stitch 4: Brighten. This stitch used the same threads as stitch 3 both used the reversed scotch but the Brighten did not completely close the squares. Again the checkerboard effect…..I wonder when this could be used.
Stitch 5: Point Russe #2. I really enjoyed this stitch and am planning on using it on many of the bookmarks that I stitch for Nordic Needle each year. I can see lots of threads including metallics and the look will change with those threads.
Stitch 6: Tudor Rose. This was an awkward stitch. It was recommended to be done with two needles….me and more than one needle equals a mess. I figured out a way to do it in 3 steps with one needle. I am going to try this, one repeat only, as a border. Using this in a large area is not appealing to me. I also used too many strands of thread for the gobelin and would reduce the thread thickness which I think would make this a more airy stitch.
Hope I haven’t bored you. 🙂
