Work in Progress Wednesday Block 42 started

Block 42 startedThis is the last block in this quilt. I am so looking forward to doing something else once these blocks are done! I am sure everyone feels like this at the end of a large project such as quilt. Anyway here it the block and hopefully next week I will be able share what I have stitched on it.  It is the same colour scheme as my last block so should be fun to work.

Break week for TAST stitches

Last week I posted instructions for 2 stitches.  People drop away when there is too many stitches and they feel they can’t keep up so as promised this week is time to catch up. I don’t want TAST to become a  to do list but rather I hope my readers can use it as than a space for experimentation and creative skill development.

I am opening up this page so that if you have worked a sample from  ANY of the stitches listed on the TAST FAQ page  post a comment below and tell us about it.

Once you have worked a sample,  photograph it and put it online at your blog, flickr etc then swing back to the Last TAST post (you will find it under the category each week)  and leave a comment.

Don’t want to miss our on any of the TAST stitches?

In this seam embellishment I  first covered the seam with hand dyed lace. I then worked a line of straight stitches in perle #8 and then I added the orange seed beads. Next I added beads to the lace then finally the vintage button

Crazy Quilt Seam Detail 489

Y2K Crazy quilt Block 74Today I would like to share a detail on block 74 of the I Dropped the Button Box Crazy Quilt. If you click on the thumbnail you will be taken to a free pattern of the block and information about the fabrics I used when I made up the block.

This is a detail on the block. I first attached the line of tatted lace  which I then worked a line detached chain half flowers  in perle #8 cotton and then I added seed beads.

The seam below is a line of up and down buttonhole worked in silk thread. I then tucked bullion knots in between the spikes.
