Needle and Thread – Details 352 to 358 July 24th, 2007

Coral Stitch

Across the first intersection of last nights join I have done Coral Stitch with silk Ribbon.

Net and Coral StitchThen going down the join I have done Feather Stitch.

Running Stitch which I have left unfinished with the needle still attached…for safty I have put a tiny drop of glue over the point of the needle and I have embedded a longer needle in the seam on the back to stiffen the fabric behind the needle so that the fabric can’t move back away from the needle on the front…with the needle I have put a scissors charm and a tiny cotton reel (available from craft shops) which I have wound with green thread.

The third section is Feather Stitch done in the opposite direction to the first section.

To add some variety to these narrow join seams I have mixed several knot stitches, alternating Single knot stitch, Double knot Stitch and Oyster Stitch which all make different sized knots.

For the 5th section, which is on an intersection of blocks I have used the net from the fishing line seam with a rock looking seed behind it and close together Coral Stitch done with a thin green thread to look like the sea weed that we called mermaids necklace because it looked like a string of beads, and when you used 2 fingers to put pressure between the beads the end one would pop off.

The last section is Double Knot Stitch.

    Annie, it is so exciting to see these large parts of the quilt being joined together. Thank you for showing so many different stitches you have done over them. I especially love the one with the oyster stitch alternating with the two other knotted stitches. The color of that thread looks perfect for pulling the two fabrics on either side together.

    I like the running stitch with needle attached. That was a very unusual seam!
