Work In Progress Wednesday is a challenge over at Pintangle, where you are encouraged to work towards completing your work in progress projects.
For me the progress has been on:
On this quilt, celebrating a traditional Swedish coffee party, I have reached the block of raspberry cordial. Is it too cold for an iced drink in your part of the world? It certainly is here in Japan! Summer still seems a long way away.
For quilting I chose TAST #36 Knotted Buttonhole Stitch. This is one of my favourite TAST stitches.
The Swedish Cushion
This last week I have spent a lot of time drafting the design of the second half of the cushion. In spite of that I have also had time to add another section of #51 Raised Herringbone Band with a swirl of Split Stitch at the end.
Furthermore, I have worked a couple of curvy lines in my favourite #36 Knotted Buttonhole Stitch. The thread used is a variegated Perle 8, that comes from my mother's stash. There is no label left, but it looks very old.
