May Stitch Along Rules Week 2
I hope you collected any supplies to begin the challenge this weekend. Remember you can use your own flower photo or this one. Check back to Week One for a larger image if you need.
So I was looking at the classes starting at AOQ which gave me two new ideas on how to make this flower. Machine Embroidery and Fast-Piece Applique (this latter is a piecing class which appears like applique). I won't be doing these, but if you are stuck for ideas or want to learn a new technique, here's the perfect opportunity.
Rules for Week Two of May Stitch Along
For this weekend's challenge:
- draft up a template of your flower for the technique you wish to use
- decide on how you want to create a background - it might be just one piece of fabric, Or maybe lots joined together (a crazy patchwork block could work!) Or maybe you have a ready made block that will work too.
- create your flower and add it to your background or piece it in if that's your technique
- go ahead and stitch it and add embellishments
Remember to send a photo of your work. This should be quick and fun OR spread it out over the month and learn something new. Your choice!
