I finally made some progress on my Crazy Quilting Basics Class!
(Class is hosted by Kathy Shaw.)
Above is the beginning of Task no.5, after adding the basic seam markings. In this particular class we have learned how to make and use seam templates.
After the basic seam markings are embroidered in the corresponding seams, we have to add combination stitches to the basic seams. Later, on of of the upcoming tasks, I'll be adding other types of embellishments to these seams.
This is the fun part! At this stage, I'm mainly using Perle Cotton no.12, and for french knots 2 strands of Color Variations DMC.
However, half way my 3rd seam, I did get a tiny bit tired of making french knots.
A much needed break from embroidering french knots was in place. This is how my block looks so far with today's progress. It's resting on my needlework desk waiting until I find a few more minutes to sit and stitch. I will love to finish this task before the upcoming weekend. We'll see!
