Carol - V Stitch Explorations


Think I've spent too much time deciding how to present Stitch Explorations and not enough with my needle!  Pleased to report I am now the proud owner of Carole's book spirally bound, small plastic wallets for my DAS templates and pieces of fabric backed with fusible webbing, not to mention a file to keep everything together.   It is my intention to make Tags and thanks again to Connie for so generously sharing her pattern. 

Having sewn just a few rows the possibilities for further embellishment of a simple "V" shape seem endless.   I have used two strands of DMC thread

Here are three very good samples of seam treatments that I will 'pinch' for my cq blocks. Thank you Carol for sharing your designs.

The design possibilities are endless for the humble V.

What an eye-opener this exercise has been. Thank you Debra for the V stitch exploration idea <3

I love the way you changed the angles as you stacked your V's together! Great patterns. Also love the row of V's with the straight line behind-- nice proportions: looks like mountains on a horizon line or teeth or something. Could also be "A"s I guess. :)

Really good start, Carol!

Connie Eyberg Originals said...

Nice examples. Endless possibilities. (...and you are welcome)

Suztats said...

Yes, good ideas!

Judy S. said...

My eyes went right to those "A"s or mountains. Also like the fabric you used. What is it? Good job doing the extra stitching!

A lady in my sewing group dyes fabric and sells it to us. She says I am her best customer!

Debra Spincic said...

I can't imagine why she would say that about you!

Carol Neale-Broughton said...

You know something neither can I, perhaps I am her only customer. Ha ha.

Debra Spincic said...

You put the fabrics to such good use that I am sure she is pleased!

Carol Neale-Broughton said...

She is always thrilled when I say our group has commented on her fabrics.

Organization is important to me before I can accomplish things, so I'm with you there. Good ideas demonstrate, and I like that fabric, too.
