DESIGN WALL MONDAY

I finally pin-basted the batik cathedral windows project yesterday.
 I began stitching the "frames" in gentle curves, using some gold metallic mylar thread from Superior Threads.  Still have more to go.  I've been pinning the curve so that I don't over-stretch the curve.
 I hope to get the rest stitched, and then decide what to stitch in the two borders.  Then I'll be able to stitch the binding while watching TV this evening.
 I also finished this wall hanging top.  I used the  small path templates (3 1/2 inch), from Elisa's Backporch DesignThere are videos on the website, showing how to stitch these curved blocks without pins.  It takes some time, but works really well!  I like these bright colours so much, I might use this as a table topper on my round dining table up north!


Head over to Judy's blog to see how creative everyone is this week!

  9. I just love this. I've been looking for a way to do the circular backed pinwheel. I think I even have the templates already. Just your arrangement is adorable!
