Barbara’s Patchwork Area B

One of the counted projects for my ANG Main Line Stitchers Chapter is ANG’s Stitch of the Month (SOTM) from 1999, Barbara’s Patchwork. There a nice variety of colors going on.

This is the next area, a composite pattern looking like a patch of flowers to me. It was a little tricky to stitch without threads showing through. I either passed the thread through the outline or started and ended within the motif.

And, one more person signed up for my Crescent Journey! And, one woman is stitching on a black canvas. This month will reveal everyone’s center motif with 6 stitches.

We’ve got the projector and speaker going again and are watching Tony Minieri and Amy Bunger Back to Basics DVDs alternating months with discussing Vases, a Sharon G painted canvas. Doing both was just too much in 2 hours. This month, we are starting Part 3 and will take 20 minutes to look at The Canvas, Compensation, and 3 Filling Patterns (Burden, Double Burden, and a Composite Couching Pattern).

Please join us November 11 (always the second Monday of the month from 7-9 pm) at Starbucks in Wayne, PA (218 Lancaster Ave).

One of the counted projects for my ANG Main Line Stitchers Chapter is ANG’s Stitch of the Month (SOTM) from 1999, Barbara’s Patchwork. I selected threads that DMC calls Topaz (Color A) and Raspberry (Color B). I was going for a Mustard and Scarlet combination.

I double counted each section in order to be sure that the grid was correct.

And, two more people signed up for my Crescent Journey!

We’ll begin discussing Vases, a Sharon G canvas, too. We have 3 different stitch guides.

Please join us tomorrow night, October 14 (always the second Monday of the month from 7-9 pm) at Starbucks in Wayne, PA (218 Lancaster Ave).
