SCC – round robin

Block for Dianne

Block for Dianne

 This is the second block I have worked on, in the Southern Cross Crazies Round Robin.  The theme is ‘Garden’.

I added the lowest seam of long tailed Fly stitch with DMC green thread and Sassa Lynne variegated Straight stitches and Detached Chain leaves

A group of roses, Fuchsias, Forget-me-nots and Lavender.

Next to these is a silk ribbon rose vine.  The stem is Whipped Chain -DMC thread and Fly stitch leaves.

A dragonfly.   A row of DMC half daisies and another vine of Delica beaded wisteria.  The stems were Whipped Stem stitch and the leaves Detached Chain both using DMC threads.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThis is Jean’s first Round Robin.  RRs are a great way to learn first hand how other people’s crazy quilting looks.  Far better than seeing a photo.

 Jean added the 2 seams and the little shrub and flowers.  The French knots are lovely.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA I love Jean’s variegated thread Bullions, which are so neat.  Beside these are her woven roses.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA  My photo does not do these justice.

In the top corner Jean added some stars to the sky.

  1. They are all lovely. ❤

  2. They are all so lovely Maureen…the beautiful neat stitching, colour and design 🙂 x

  3. Really pretty! Such soft and pretty colours.

  4. I love those beaded wisteria – that makes my fingers itch to stitch. =) I will have to practice my bouillon stitches until they look as pretty as Jean’s. I had no idea they could be so pretty! Sassa Lynne – my favorite!

    • Thanks Susan for the visit. I agree Jean’s bullions are great. Mine tend to be hit and miss.
