That is a really nice scalloped edge! Oh, I may steal this for my Mother & Child piece.
About how many wraps did you do?

Carol Neale-Broughton said...

Oh yes, please do, "I'd" love to be on your Mother and Child piece! 12 wraps spaced 1cm apart.

Carol, this scalloped edge is fantastic! It may (will) be showing up on one of my projects too. Perfect thread for this. I enjoy your CQ travel blocks so much and Egypt will be fun to watch develop.

I loved stitching all my blocks, but my favourite will have to be New Zealand because it felt so very personal.

I shall be stealing-err-borrowing this, too! Love the cast-on as a scalloped edging! A nice thread you've used, too.

Lovely! Those beads work perfect with it too. This will be a fun block.

Carol Neale-Broughton said...

Isn't it strange how things work out? I only used the scallops because I didn't think flower type stitches would work for Egypt. When I'd completed the scallops I could still see the seam line and that is why the bugles got a showing.

Debra Spincic said...

The scallop takes the stitch out of the flower range completely.

Your cast-on stitches have taken on a lotus plant look when used in this theme. Very Egyptian. An excellent seam treatment for this block. Love the colours too.

Love the way the addition of the bead makes your scalloped edge look like a garland. Would be a fun way to decorate a Christmas tree!

I'm assuming you mean a really small, fake one printed on fabric. Otherwise, I think you may have some bonkers with that idea! *wink*

What a beautiful set of cast-on stitches. :) Is the image right above them rubber-stamped onto the cloth?

Carol Neale-Broughton said...

No Tahlia, it's a downloaded image, which I've printed onto fabric.

Peacock said...

Ah! :) It looks lovely.

What a beautiful swag, it reminds me of a section of drapery embellishment.

Love this scalloped edging! Love the piece it's on, too.
