WIPW - The Back

 Work In Progress Wednesday.

Sunday Stitch School Stitch Sampler

I decorated the appliquéd ovals with the following stitches:

#24 X-ray Stitch, #25 Y Stitch, #85 Wrapped Cross Stitch and #170 Danish Knotted Cross Stitch

Velveteen Cushion

The quilting on the front is now completed. I will probably add some appliqué later so it is not really done yet.

The next step was to work on the back. Here it is only one piece of grey velveteen to work on.
I used a similar cross design for the centre, and then petals that peek out from underneath.

I used three types of metallic thread, gold, silver and copper. Also raspberry pink and mint green Cotton a Broder thread. So far I have used Feather, Chain, Stem and E Laced Edging Stitch.


  1. Very beautiful and fancy! Good tension too!

  2. I love the ovals. Both the stitches and the colours are pretty.

  3. This velveteen cushion looks so luxurious.

  4. This is looking very lovely!

  5. The appliqué is colorful and cute.
    I think gold,silver and copper threads are effective.

  6. You have such a knack of combining shapes and stitches- and everyone attractive. The quilt is almost there and looking marvellous.

  7. The quilt is looking really nice.

  8. I've never thought of trying to do embroidery on velveteen though I realize now that a lot of crazy quilts use those scraps of fabric with embroidery. It looks so elegant!
