Ninth Block – Details 166 to 168 February 16th, 2007

half herringbone half cretan with detached chain

This is a combination stitch with Herringbone on the top and Creton stitch on the bottom and I have added Detached Chain and beads to finish it.

Herringbone crossed with straight stitches

Partial Herringbone stitch….start on the seam, do three herringbone stitches and finish on the seam, repeat…for added effect do a small straight stitch over each cross.

flower trail and colonial knots

Flower Trail…the little flowers in this trail are cut from lace, I coloured them with fabric paint and added beads and Colonial Knots

This block, with my Nana and Grandfather on it, is the ninth block for my mum’s memory quilt and the last of the UFO (UnFinished Object since 1994) component of this project…stay tuned as it mutates into a WIP (work in progress).
