Susan: CQJP2013 Update

This is the finished version of the red and blue seam from last week.


Here's the latest addition. Someone on the list should see a similarity to something they did last week. Mine is on a curve instead of a zigzag. I'm debating on whether to put French knots or beads.

I really like that red and blue seam! It has a lot of movement. Hmmmm, that curvy trim looks a little familiar......Taking it over two fabrics in the two colours adds more movement to this block, and I like seeing how the different fabrics beneath the embroidery changes the look.

Lots of loops on this block--looking very unified.

Love it! I'd vote for beads to add some sparkle, but french knots would be good, too.

What interesting curvy lines embroidery stitches. It's great how we keep on inspiring each other with our projects.

I found it was very different doing it on a curve! I loved the way yours looked, but I felt I needed a curve because there was already so much arrow pointing. I love the way it turned out.

Now is it me, or is it my stitching, that you find loopy? LOL!

I'm leaning toward beads, but I want to look at the other three blocks, because I don't want this one to stand out too much. This one has so many great places for beads, and most of the others didn't.

TeeHee. No comment. (stitching)

Someone local asked me how I come up with so many designs, and I just told them I steal from all my friends. =)

It's the sincerest form of flattery!

I just love the period feel of these blocks and your stitching is wonderful. My favorite on this block is the blue & red in the top photo, lots of sparkler movement going on there.

Those curves are so nicely laid out too.

Yes, the blue and red in the top photo looks like fireworks. I love the way you're finding stitches to mimic fireworks and buntings.
