Sunday Stitch School – a few lessons

Two stitches I forgot to add with the last post. A combination of No. 79 Crown stitch on No. 78, Interlaced Chain.

I used a thick soft thread for the chain, laced it with a glitzy DMC thread and the crown was made with a fine wool.

 

 

 

 

The top row of stitches again shows No. 79 Crown stitch and the lower one is No. 80,Corded Bar stitch.

Both very easy stitches and the bar looks good however it’s placed.

Playing with the Corded Bar on plain cloth.  Orange thread is 2 plies of DMC, White is a 2ply wool, the blue a single ply of some silky thread and the pink a 4 ply knitting cotton.

An extra lesson was learned after seeing the photo.  Make sure to use the correct marking pen.  I accidently used a biro (shudder) instead of my Frixon pen that fades with the heat of an iron.

More Corded Bar on my CQ block.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Almost missed this one.  another Crown  on plain cloth,this time in a quite thick silky thread- no idea what it could be.

  1. Oh, I love how you have combined the stitches! Your crazy quilt block is coming along beautifully with all the different stitches.

  2. Interesting stitches (and combinations) once again. It never ceases to amaze me all the different stitches there are to play with!

    • There really are a lot of interesting and different stitches- many coming from old books as well as new. More uses are found by adding a modern twist to them and modern threads also.
