Stitch Along Gallery - June 2015
Remember to join in for some fun in our June stitch along. It really isn't too difficult and it is a bunch of fun. Here are the rules which will be updated each week as more rules are posted.
Week One Gallery Images
Barbara Frohne joined us again this month. Good for you Barbara. Her artist palette includes a number of items she bought thinking she would use them in creating art pieces, but never really did. Now is a great opportunity to make use of them. The background is solid brown.
Here is my collection of items. I also have paints which are not included here that I may used. Check out my blog post to find out the fabric that is missing - My week one entry
Amanda sent along her collection. Her "Painters palette" brought batiks and swirled colours to mind. She also included some scraps of batik fabric previously stitched together, multi-coloured threads and some Angelina fibers.
You can read about Jennifer's collection on her blog post.
Week Two Gallery Images
I will start the gallery this week with my broken petals and leaves. Read about what I did in this week's blog post.
It's butterflies this week by Amanda, colors from the "painters palette". Some of the butterflies have solid colors and some have "broken" colors, either rainbow stripes or
replaced with Angelina fibers.
Jennifer used broken circles which you can read about on her blog.
Week Three Gallery Images
This week is stitch week so I stitched down the applique. I'll add some more next week.
Amanda sent her photo in. She used echo quilting and sparkle thread on the 'broken' butterflies.
Jennifer sent her project in. You can read about it on her blog.
Week Four Gallery Images
Barbara sent along her finished piece. She had fun with this challenge and is calling it "Coloring Outside The Lines". She used silk, metallic threads, antique buttons, beads and a small crocheted doily. Pieced a neutral design from scraps and finished with a decorative stitch around edge.
Amanda also finished her piece. She has been wanting to try quilting all over for a while and this piece seemed the perfect opportunity to give it a go. The binding is on 3 sides only as it is going to be a page from a cloth book. She will bind all the pages together on the unbound side.
Here is my finished piece. Can you see my sparkly thread? You can in the close ups on my blog post.
I cannot believe 6 months of the year are done already. Where do the days go? Now to start a new challenge...
