Quilting Bee is Done
While sorting out my nest, again, looking for what I might have forgotten that I had 🙂 I was reminded that I only had two more stitch samples to complete the Quilting Bee notebook class that I took online. In an effort to reduce the size of my nest (which sits on one end of my couch) I completed the final two stitches.
Stitch 11: This is called the Quilted Stitch. It is composed of an elongated double upright cross, outlined with backstitch. It was very easy to work. When I stood back and looked after it was done I thought Lattice. With this as a base one could put some growing vines and knot flowers…..I suppose I should have a notepad with me at all times to record my stitching ideas as they are fleeting at best.
Stitch 12: This is called Triangle Variation. It was done with Dinky Dyes overdye. Once again I am reminded of how changing the direction of stitches changes the overall effect. There is a lot of depth perception in this stitch. I can see lots of variations just by changing colors.
Now back to selecting something to stitch.
