New Project!

This was the beginning of a new block design as I was just starting the 2nd hooping.  Here’s what the 3 blocks looked like once they’d been completed:
It’s been so long since I worked on a black background that I’d forgotten how dramatic a backdrop it can be.  I added a corner triangle into each corner, and this block shows the squares pinned on, before they’d been sewn in place and then trimmed:
This next shot shows the table runner once it’s been sewn together.  I like how it came out:
I outlined each applique shape with invisible thread and did my SID work.  I used 2 of the PTD arc rulers to create a small frame in the center of each  floral quartet:
…and then stitched a featherette in the center.  If you view each featherette as 4 equal parts, it’s pretty easy to do this:
(Do you see that clear acrylic ruler foot?  That’s the Clarity ruler foot and it’s available in our store here.)  This last shot shows the completed featherette:
I haven’t gone any further than this, but I have plans!

    Oh, Patsy — I just love this one. You know my affinity for black backgrounds. Is the floral design, including those chartreuse digitized swirls, available on your web site?
