100 details for 100 days Day 24

Day 24
A different type of Wisteria vine is featured today which is made by creating bunches of caston stitch in a silk thread that is the same weight as DMC pearl 8 or for finer rings pearl 12. In the middle of each flower I have stitched a French knot

The leaves are detached chain stitch worked in a rayon thread which is the same weight as DMC pearl 8. The same thread was used to work the stems which is done in whipped stem stitch

Julia (aka Ribbonwiz) Camille’s Place has posted some of her interpretations of wisteria on her blocks.

Annie Whitsed ‘s Christmas in July theme is still running on Annies Crazy World

Pam Kellogg of Kitty & Me Designs has a charted design of a strawberry online. Once again I really like this motif.

The numbers of people jumping in and joining this challenge are growing in this as Mary Anne of Magpies Mumblings is going to use some of the details to propel her forward and complete a number of UFO’s (UnFinished Objects)

Rissa of Rissas Pieces has also joined the challenge by embracing the challenge as a opportunity to skill share and has added tips and tricks to the list of possible interpretations this challenge can be.

Since this series was set up as personal challenge for me and I never expected people to join in let alone stitch along it’s quite an open ended challenge. Typical of crazy quilting it’s turned into a no rules personal challenge to be in interpreted as you choose. I feel people can join in as much or as little as they choose, stitch along, put up and highlight their own details, provide patterns or skill share. No need to start from the beginning just jump in, shape the challenge to your needs, and join. If you drop behind for some reason don’t fret just pick up where you can. Simply put, just focus on a detail a detail at a time, a day at a time, any detail, any time and that is that. I think one of the reasons it is shaping up to be so much fun is because it is so open ended. I am going to be very sad when it ends!

  1. Charlene I use a digital camera a Canon Powershot A 530. I use the close up setting – zoom in and take a photo. I then use Photoshop to clean up the photo if it needs it – but usually all I do is crop it iand that is it.

  2. Sharon,
    As you can see I am SO glad you have archived this wonderful opportunity. I have done the cast-on wisteria, and it was fun to do. Would you tell me how you get such wonderful close-up pictures of your work?
    Thank you just doesn’t seem adequate!

  3. I came by your blog in a convoluted way, from one link to another .. but I got here right at the beginning (on day 3) and glad I am I did! I just want to tell you how much I appreciate the time and effort you (and all the others who took up the challege) are putting into this project. There is a weath of knowledge here! It is better than any book I might have picked up! I will be coming back here again and again when I need inspiration and information.
    Thank you very much. Rgards from
    A Florida Quilter,

  4. Sharon, I had to come back and look at these again. Are each of the cast on circles worked seperately and then sewn on? Being a tatter, I understand how to do the caston stitch but I can’t quite figure out how you did these. I’m intriqued by them and want to use this idea for grapes.

  5. Oh Sharon, I just love this detail! They look like little grapes to me. I was wondering how big one bunch is? I think you use metric in Oz and I have no idea how I would convert that to inches but I would love to use this idea on my current project. Just don’t know if it’ll fit.

  6. Thanks for the encouragement in my quest to lose a few pounds and get a little healthier! I’ve had several other stitchers step forward on my blog and join us so together we can step our way to success.
