WIPW - Roses

It is a hot summer here and my Work In Progress Wednesday, is just a short report.
Why not head over to Sharon's WIPW to see more eye candy from others, as well as what she wrote about various uses of her cz stencils, mine one among them.

Kafferepet

I have made two more stray stems by using my cz stencils and TAST stitches #27 Basque Stitch and #20 Butterfly Chain

Then I played with the #73  Wrapped Coral Stitch on the edge of the rose petals. There are some Pistil stitches and Colonial Knots, too.

you have done some lovely things with Sharon`s stencils Queenie and the applique flowers have really caught my eye, especially the one with the curled leaf, it looks so alive.

Lovely, as ever, I really like the variegated fabric you've used for the petals on the largest rose.

I like the stitches on your flowers, the wrapped coral stitch looks very nice on the edges.

not sure what happened but I know I have commented on this earlier Queenie, love what you have done with Sharon`s stencils, have mine now and did a bit with them before I read the pdf which is loaded with so many great ideas.The flower with the leaf slightly turned over looks so realistic, beautiful

Susan Hook said...

What a lovely addition you have made by using the different stitches, the flowers look great!

Queeniepatch said...

The fabric for the leaves is actually a Christmas print. Have you ever seen rose leaves with fir needles!

Queeniepatch said...

Thank you Margaret. The stencils are really great for getting even markings.

I loved the Wrapped Coral Stitch so much I just had to add it to the appliqué!

Queeniepatch said...

Thank you!

Queeniepatch said...

There are three different fabric, one of them is a lovely batik from the States.

Queeniepatch said...

This stitch was so much fun to do, I had to keep using it, so it ended up on the petals as well!

Queeniepatch said...

Yes, I am afraid they have a life of their own!

Queeniepatch said...

Don't worry! It is me being slow in posting the comments and answering them.
That was a massive pdf full of combinations, so I am sure you will find the stencils fun to use.

Queeniepatch said...

This might become a TASTy coffee party quilt! It is great fun to try to add the various TAST stitches.

Pamela said...

I love all the details! I find it hard to stop adding stitches. Do you ever feel like that?

Queeniepatch said...

Oh, yes! All the time; I actually have to restrain myself from overstitching.

Angela said...

love it!

Queeniepatch said...

Thank you!

The Coral Stitch on the edge of the rose petals is very effective and very nicely done.

Queeniepatch said...

Thank you. Yes, I could not stop using the Wrapped Coral Stitch once I had learned it!
