Metalforms, Part 1

Both my ANG chapters, Main Line and Keystone, are working on Metalforms by Jeff Kulick. I’m doing the copper on green colorway. 

The border is done except for the backstitch on the inside of the border which I’ll do after stitching the adjacent sections.

I adjusted the coiled cable by separating them by one thread in order to have the paired horizontal cables flow out of each coil symmetrically. My partial diagram is shown. This was a very interesting composite stitch.

P.S. Oops! Just noticed, I forgot to repeat St. Margaret Stitch (horizontal and vertical Gobelin stitches) on the right side of the spring stitches.

A couple of my ANG Main Line Chapter members started Metalforms designed by Jeff Kulick very shortly after we got the publication but I didn’t have time to start then. The first 2 members selected the silver on black colorway. Another member started a few months later with the copper colorway on white sparkle canvas. And, I finally got started with the copper colorway on green canvas.

When I initially ordered threads from ABC Stitch Therapy, I only got half of them (pictured below) – the rest were on back order. I knew the bright pink thread, Frye Werks Soft Sheen FT9 was wrong. And, there was a typo – it should be Fyre Werks Metallic Ribbon F9. Trebizond 3637 has been discontinued; so, I will try 3639 or 3635.

This is step one of the outer border, a pattern of mosaic stitches, using Fyre Werks FT44. Next, I’ll fill the open areas with Flair F508.
