Work In Progress Wednesday - Change of plan

Do you remember these ricrac cones? I blogged about them here after following the tutorial on Pintangle.



They are really neat and I like them a lot. In spite of that, I decided that they are not right for the bias tape quilt. That is why I removed them and instead made four Whipped Wheels with some Chain stitches and blue beads.



They sit much flatter on the quilt and I think on the whole these wheels look better.

On the crazy quilt block I have only outlined the pattern on one of the pieces with a few Stem stitches:


I am sure the others have made much more progress on their work. To see, go to Work In Progress Wednesday on Pintangle.

    1. I warmly recommend trying Sharon's tutorial. Making the cones is a bit fiddly but with a few pins and needle and thread on the ready you should end up with some stylish cones.

  2. The ricrac cones looked good but I think the whipped wheels look better on your quilt. Sharon certainly has some great tutorials. I just wish I had more time to try more stitches.
