Stitch Along Sunday is back for the third week. Did you miss week 1 or week 2? Remember this is an example of how Stitch Along Sunday will work. In coming Stitch Alongs I'll be posting the challenge words or activities earlier in the week so we can all sew together on Sundays or at least share some photos then.

If you are doing this challenge and have a blog where you post about it, add our party button. Here is the link to the Stitch Along Sunday party and if you need more info about the party follow this link to see: how the party works Stitch Along Sunday party 

So far, my challenge piece looks like this.

Stitch Along Challenge Week 2

I have included the words: "blue", "time", "round", "plant" in week one and "spin", "flicker", "free" in week two with one of the latter words being included in some form of stitching.

Jennifer Houlden did the challenge. You can see what she added to her quilt here: Jen's blog post

Chris van der Jagt also did the challenge. Jennifer posted about it here: Chris's challenge

This week our challenge is to use one of two words in the form of an embellishment.

Let's explain what can be used for embellishments. Basically that is anything added on top of the quilt such as buttons, beads, yarns, charms, paper, stickers, mixed media - anything that can be attached. We are also going to include painting, crayoning and stamping in this list.

Week Three Rules and Words

Use either "cold" or "warm" in your quilt this week. The only rule is that it must be used in an embellishment. As a hint, you could use a red button and attach it to your quilt. Red being a warm color. 

Remember to finish off any stitching before adding embellishments. At this stage you may want to just position your embellishment to take a photo, then do the actual attaching on week four if you think it might get in the way.

Here is my example with embellishments. I added tiny beads to the tree to give a frosty feeling. I've also created a new "time" by doing this, "winter time". It's okay to change throughout the challenge.

What will you come up with? I look forward to seeing.

Next week we will be finishing off this challenge example and taking a look toward starting a new one. In future challenges, I will not be posting my work in advance as I have been for this challenge example. It will be fun to see what everyone comes up with.

  • I still plan on doing this challenge. Unfortunately, my own free time does not seem to be my own. I need to work on that. Love your piece so far!
