Stitch Along Gallery - August 2015
Here is August's stitch along gallery. You can join in the fun any time you like. Here are the links to each set of rules as they are posted:
Gallery Images for Week One
Sandy joined in this week and sent along a colored page. She used crayons for her coloring tool.
I used Sharpie pens to color in my pages. You can read about it in my first blog post for this month's challenge.
Gallery Images for Week Two
Sandy has cropped out an interesting section of her design, printed it and chosen fabrics too.
I printed my cropped image and also selected fabrics. Just three for this, but do check out my blog post for instructions on how to create a digital window card for design selecting.
Gallery Images for Week 3
Sandy used fusible webbing to attach her pieces in place.
I am using a method of machine applique that I don't often use any more, but it was good for me to compare my notes. You might like this method if you don't like raw edged applique. Instructions on how to prepare the shapes are described in this week's blog post.
Gallery Images for Week 4
Sandy used blanket stitch to attach her pieces. Here is a closeup of her stitching.
And here is what the whole piece looks like...
My stitch along has the pieces attached by invisible machine applique. A technique I don't use often these days, but still a great technique that resembles hand applique but is achieved a lot faster. You can read about this technique on my last blog post.
Have you tried blanket stitch or invisible machine applique? Both methods are fun and achieve great results.
