Our blog reader/friend Carrolyn from Washington State loves to do handwork and I knew you’d love to see her embroidered blocks.
site is www.foragebylisamattock.com.au. Based loosely on her quilt called ALBERT. style is called slo stitching…..totally by hand and raw edge Applique using rescued vintage …mostly stained ….dish towels, coasters, doilies, dresser scarves, pillow cases, tablecloths and small fabric scraps. I cut 6 by 9 inch muslin pieces that I just laid chosen pieces of background, laid out a raw edged bird on each and did kantha , running stitch and simple embroider if not enuf from linens. Then blocks were placed on a whole cloth background and am buttonholing down with pearl cottons……Quilting will be with pearl cottons and again running, kantha stitching in the fake sashing/borders
And here’s my contribution – the tale of two shrubs! Connie – tell me the name of this plant – golden something?
