This series Crazy Quilt details highlight the hand embroidered seams and embellishments on the blocks that make up my crazy quilt I dropped the button box. For a free pattern of the block and information about the fabrics I used when I made up the block click on the block thumbnail.
This hand embroidered seam on block 76 uses a stitch that is one of the favourites of many crazy quilters. It is feather stitch that is further embellished with seed beads and bugle beads.
Today I have a detail from section 50 on my Love of Stitching Band Sampler
This is a section of pattern darning which is just a form of running stitch arranged in patterns. I used hand dyed rayon thread on hand dyed linen. I enjoyed regularity of it yet seeing the effects the changing colours of the thread.
This section of the sampler was worked between March and May 2010.
This area is a section in my Love of Stitching Band Sampler which is 15 cm (6 inches) wide and currently measures 96 feet 5 inches (2,938.78 centimetres), or 32.138 yards which is 29.3878 meters. It is still growing…
I have been getting my next studio class ready and sending our class invitations. If you are enrolled you should have your class invitation in your email. Bookings are now closed for this class.
Anyway in between this admin work I did find time to finish off the inside pocket of my Hussif. If you click on the image you will see a larger version of it
Last week I mentioned how this pocket had a small thimble sized “secret” pocket that I found appealing. I thought this week I would share some other close details.
The first detail herringbone stitch which is laced with a metalic thread using the same lacing pattern as Twisted lattice band Down the centre I secured with a seed bead some little novelty beads that are in the shape of flower. I added little petals made of Bullion knots wrapped with a detached chain stitch, These were worked in hand dyed Perle #5 cotton thread. I then added straight stitches in a metallic thread. At the base I added a bead.
The next detail is a floral motif made up of Woven Trellis stitches that have been worked in hand dyed silk thread that is the same thickness as perle #8 cotton thread. The stem is created using Rope stitch
