I'm having a lot of fun working with all these solids!
I'm combining them with the loads and loads of white I acquired from the donation of several dozen large choir gowns. Remember these?
I've also been doing some triple-stitching of sketches I made, so they look similar to hand embroidery or redwork. I haven't heard back from the magazine editor yet if I can show you my progress on that quilt or not, so for now I"ll go back to the post so you can see the technique. I'm not sure there's a name for it. I just came up with it because I was procrastinating doing hand embroidery. It isn't exactly machine embroidery. Nothing is pre-programed and I don't own an embroidery machine. I just outline the sketch lines I drew with a triple stitch, VERY SLOWLY, pivoting after ever stitch. Hand stitching would be quicker, though I do like and trust the look of this. By the way, I'm much better at it now than I was when I made this post. Enjoy!
