Here I have worked several of the Fly Stitch varieties.
Other 'flies' will be added next week.
EXTRA! A New Sunday Stitch School Reference Chart
had to be made as the previous one was full.
Here I have another 54 squares, and as you can see the first space is already filled with #107 Tvistsöm - Vertical and Diagonal (part of my homework report for Friday).
So sometime at the end of 2020, if I can keep up the work, this chart will be full...
For the last three years, when I have met my friends Julie and Tanya in Tokyo Dome at the Tokyo International Great Quilt Festival in January we have set ourselves a challenge. The first was Mola, the second was Cathedral Windows.
I made these bags that double as cushion covers:
Cathedral Windows (front)
Cathedral Windows (back)
The challenge for next January is Circles. Julie and Tanya are already done, but I have only just started.
I guess the bag/cushion cover I have started on will resemble the Cathedral Windows pattern as I am using a method called Japanese Folded Patchwork.
The parts are made up of circles and squares, and I have cut out a number of green circles, made a line of Running Stitch along the circle. I will place the smaller round cardboard card inside, pull the thread to gather it around the card, press it with a hot iron, insert some pink squares, fold over and have a square with curves. Together these squares will form circles...
For the back I will use this print I found in the UK. Some of the inserted squares will be made up of Indian brocade, fancy dress fabric with machine embroidery and sequins, and other scraps of pink.
NEW! Tvistsöm Cushion
I have fallen so in love with Tvistsöm that I want to make a cushion. I started copying the star pattern on my existing cushion, and will create a new pattern.
Considering it is still too hot and humid for my liking, I think I have had a good week.
