I have been working on the last few (broken) quilting lines on the inner border. Rope Stitch all along.
Thank you for all your kind comments on last week's horse. It was very rewarding work! My friend and award winning quilter, Jacquie Harvery, even had her connections at DMC UK place it on their Pinterest site.
As you can see from this picture I have started work on the last quarter. The cushion will be oblong with the horse and the newly started area on one side and the other sections on the other. In that way the cushion will become reversible.
To make the fabric fit into a hoop I have basted support fabric on the corner.
This week's progress is the star on the corner, and I ticked three stitches off the list. (#7 has been used many times before).
The TAST stitches used are:
#24 Palestrina (orange perle 8)
#10 Running Stitch (light rust perle 8 and laced with green silk)#7 Detached Chain (threads as above)
#115 Whipped Long Tail Chain (red, blue, rust and light green perle 8)
