Stitch Along June 2014 Gallery

Posted by Ruth on 8 June 2014 | 1 Comments


Here is our Stitch Along gallery for the month of June. I hope to see plenty of entries this month as this is a fun one for sure. If you missed the rules to get started, you can find them here: Week 1 rules and Week 2 rules

Week 1

Gin Keim sent in her stripped fabric with background. Gin used Joen Wolfrom's "Color Play" book to help her get the colors right - they look great! She has also decided to enrol with Lily Kern's "Creative Color" class at the Academy of Quilting which starts on the 13th June (next Friday) - another great way to learn about color.

Jennifer Houlden also sent in her block of fabrics. She used squares to make up her piece. They look great too! You can read about it on her blog.

My fabric block was made up of strips which I actually found in my block bin of unfinished things. Glad I could use it up in something useful. Check out my decision for the background: My Stitch Along week 1

Barbara Crompton also joined in. She found strips in her stash that went together nicely and chose a background to go with them.

Kay Chavez posted her start, let's see what she does with these triangles! Kay says: "Dog ears I have left from a Quilt of Valor in blue/star and eagle camouflage from Stonehenge and the background was for another challenge quilt that is rustic red with tiny cream stars. Starter shape is obviously triangles."

Week 2

Gin Keim sent in her shape cut from the fabric made last week and has it appliqued to the background. Very cute Gin!

Gin's Tropical fish

Jennifer Houlden made circles from her fabric. You can read about it on her blog.

A closer look - those squares in the circles play well together!

I also made circles, big and small. Read what I did on my Sunday blog post.

My circles and stripes

Barbara Crompton sent in her work too. This chain effect looks great.

Barbara Crompton's chain

Kay - "since the 'dog ears' made for some really small pieces and tons of seams, I needed to go larger with the pieces so I have two ovals different by about 2". I used a decorative stitch which mimicked the stars/starburst to me."

Week 3

Barbara sent in her progress. She chose black for her color and make parallel lines, changing the direction within the chain.

Barbara added quilting

I used purple for my color and used straight lines within circle shapes. Read how I used freezer paper to achieve this on my recent blog post.

My straight quilted circles

Kay used black thread and echo quilted the triangle shape from previous week 1:

And here is a close up of the quilting - awesome!

My Stitch Along with a quilted bead trail - this coloring is a little more true to reality than the one above! Read blog post >>

Barbara Crompton sent in her finished piece and added triangle embellishments to enhance it. That's very cool!

Barbara's finished challenge

Kay added an embellished strip of twill tape and used rickrack in her binding - great effect!

  • Beautiful pieces. Isn't it amazing how the final quilting "makes" the piece?
