Year in Stitch

A third lady done with crazy quilt work and buttons. The threads are all perle cotton and embroidery floss.



I had seen this pattern at my local yarn shop Blizzard Yarn and Fiber in Vancouver, Washington and liked it. The stitch is a different one from what I had knit before and looks woven. The yarn is a variegated wool.

I’ve felted and then stitched this piece of felt to be a cover for the pages I made from the samples started in the Art and Soul class on Texture with Liz Kettle. The threads are perle cotton in sizes 3 and 5 which show better on felt than finer threads. The stitches are running stitch, stem stitch and French knots.

The piece will be folded in half with the fold at the top and the pages attached there.felt cover detail


Here is the denim jacket I started in the Art and Soul class taught by Ruth Chandler in Portland in February. The back view shows it better.

It was a fun class but hers always are. The pieces are Japanese scraps that she had for us to use.  Not as much stitching as some boro but I like the look.Denim jacket back

Year in Stitch

I’ve gone back to the Crazy Quilting technique using some blocks I pieced featuring the print of the lady that a friend gave me.

The threads are perle cotton, rayon and matt silk. I like doing them mostly to try lots of different stitches.
