It is time for another Work In Progress Wednesday report.
This project is nearing its end, I started it in July last year, so it has been brewing for 15 months.
Most of the areas are now filled in. What's left will be a few stitches here and there, then there is the stretching and finishing with a border.
During the last week I added these stitches: Knotted Sheaf, God's Eye, German Knotted Braid, Tvistsöm and Woven Circle.
Log Cabin Challenge
However, I am running out of the metallic fabric I am using for the centre piece. From my stash of fancy dressmaking fabric I pulled out another type of metallic, in the colours of the rainbow. The gold can be used for the this Log Cabin Challenge, there is yellow gold and cool silvery gold.
Here you can compare them: Copper (the one I am running out of) on the left, gold (what I started out with) in the middle, and gold (the new one). This one is more structured - its a roaring fire in the hearth!
Crazy for Crazy
Other pieces I pulled out from the stash were these in teal that I will be using for the next Crazy Quilt Octagon block.
I have not selected ornaments or lace/ribbon yet, but I will try my hand at making a shirtwaist button, and I have plenty of gold pearls and beads.
I made another few rows...
