Stitch Along Gallery - June 2015

Posted by Ruth on 8 June 2015 | 0 Comments


Remember to join in for some fun in our June stitch along. It really isn't too difficult and it is a bunch of fun. Here are the rules which will be updated each week as more rules are posted.

Week One Gallery Images

Barbara Frohne joined us again this month. Good for you Barbara. Her artist palette includes a number of items she bought thinking she would use them in creating art pieces, but never really did. Now is a great opportunity to make use of them. The background is solid brown.

Here is my collection of items. I also have paints which are not included here that I may used. Check out my blog post to find out the fabric that is missing - My week one entry

Amanda sent along her collection. Her "Painters palette" brought batiks and swirled colours to mind. She also included some scraps of batik fabric previously stitched together, multi-coloured threads and some Angelina fibers.

It's butterflies this week by Amanda, colors from the "painters palette". Some of the butterflies have solid colors and some have "broken" colors, either rainbow stripes or
replaced with Angelina fibers.

Week Four Gallery Images

Barbara sent along her finished piece. She had fun with this challenge and is calling it "Coloring Outside The Lines". She used silk, metallic threads, antique buttons, beads and a small crocheted doily. Pieced a neutral design from scraps and finished with a decorative stitch around edge.

Amanda also finished her piece. She has been wanting to try quilting all over for a while and this piece seemed the perfect opportunity to give it a go. The binding is on 3 sides only as it is going to be a page from a cloth book. She will bind all the pages together on the unbound side.
