Now if i could get my act into gear I would love to join in..of course i will have to catch up first.
Forgive me, but I must have missed it , I don’t quite get how the ladies are doing these..are they making a block or just rows of seam treatments..
Julia its very open as its grown of its own accord – I started posting details then Allison started work some on the blocks she already had on the go and others joined in – its really up to each person as to how they want to interpret this. Lindas interpretation is fine as probably the most important aspect is to get eyecandy out there and people stimulated to try something new even if its only a couple of seams.
I am ‘kinda playing along’ with the 100 series too (another Quilt Studio quilter who got the info on the series from Allie)…I am doing a very small CQ for my Journal page this month and your series is SOOO timely…you can see my feeble attempts on my blog – http://caricol.blogspot.com/ – I have not embroidered since I was a child so my treatments are going to rather wonky! And..unless I make more blocks to practice on, I will run out of seams in a couple of weeks!
One suggestion for the series…I found with the first one I did that I got way, way too cramped and could not get all the elements in – could you by chance give an approximate size to your repeats?? That way us beginners will know to leave enough space!
I LOVE your site! Thanks *so* much for everything thats published on it…its a great help!
I love what you are doing with ribbons. It is nice to see ideas to couch or sew down a ribbon with beautiful embroideries.
This particular pic is a good example of the variety of ‘stuff’ a person can incorporate in a CQ piece. The buttons, different ribbons, etc. Very attractive.
Sharon, thank you so much for the nice compliment. 🙂 Coming from you means a lot to me. I don’t see any slopiness in your work but if that is what you think, it is the most beautifull slopiness I’ve ever seen and the one that always inspire me. Lol!
