When it comes to creating a quilt, stitching is like the icing on the cake. After all the piecing and surface design are complete, we quilters use needle and thread to add a final element of design, texture, and color, truly bringing the piece to life.

This free eBook contains several ideas for allowing your stitching to take center stage. First, Laura Wasilowski uses hand  stitching to add vibrancy and color. Then, Jackie Cardy shows how to create samplers of serendipitous hand stitching inspired by mid-century motifs. If you’ve ever wondered what to do with all of those programed pattern stitches on your machine, you’ll love Carole Redlich’s article on using these designs to create Impressionist-style pieces. Finally, Terry White describes the basics of thread painting, and shares one of her patterns to get you going.

Hi

I'm here in Ireland. Sometimes I can find the magazine in a big shop, but they only receive a few copies. It's a pity, anyway i find perfect everything you have on line. I bought in Stitches and some downloables workshops. and really love the E-books this one it's perfect for me. I want to give all of you a big THANK YOU for giving us the opportunity to have this material.
