Quilting Bee Continued
I have finished all the little brown tent stitched on Sedona Rain. I am ready to add stitches that I can actually see. I took a break from Sedona Rain to catch up with my online notebook class, Quilting Bee.
Stitch 7 Jacquard Palace Pattern. This stitch has many possibilities. The diamond shaped middle stitches brought to the forfront once again how the direction of stitches can alter the light play. I also learned, once again, that it is difficult to work into “dirty holes” when satin stitch is used. It is very obvious that my stitches are not smooth.
Stitch 8 Diagonal Stitch With Mosaic I liked this pattern. It was done with an overdyed and a solid and I think that experimenting with shades of the same color will create an interesting effect.
Stitch 9 Floral Stitch This is another pattern that produces a checkerboard effect. I think it would be lovely as flowers in an irregular shape which would soften the checkerboard.
Stitch 10 Gobelin Variation I’m not sure I really likes this pattern. It could be the overdye, or possible the Pebbly Perle that was plied and used only 2 ply. I did not lay very well.
This photo isn’t the best but I was trying for a closeup so the stitches could be seen. An update on Sedona Rain will be posted soon.
