Today is the last day for the 15% off sale over at lisahcalle.com! Don’t miss out!
I have skipped over the Hunter’s Star since the Lemoyne star was so much like it. I am going to slow down on these posts as I want to actually have some time to quilt my next competition piece. So I will be posting progress pictures of that. I am hoping you all will give me some motivation to finish it… or at least get a move on it. LOL So I will post blocks pictures on Monday and Friday and see how that goes. I’d love it if you all participated. Any takers? If you send me Friendship star pics I can post them on Friday. I know short notice so, no pressure.
Here we ago…
Step 1 : Divide up your block. This is the first thing I would stitch… along with all of my stitch in the ditch work. As you probably have noticed I use a lot of ProEchoes in all different sizes because its nice to have a lot of different curves to chose from. Remember they are on sale right now…. just saying…
Step 2: Add some design work… no surprise what I chose.
Step 3: decided to add a chain of pebbles… this is where the ProPebble 1/4 comes in handy.
Step 4: I’ve added some extra curves in to frame the pebbles and straight-line stitching with the ProLine 16. Then I added some sand stipple right next to the feathers which help them pop. I also added some partial circles (using the Propebble 3/4 in the corner… once they are next to the other blocks they will form a circle.
Step 5: finished up with some more straight line fill on the outside of the feather echo and then some more sand stipple in the corners. Some crosshatching in the center ( 1/2″) and some circles in the triangles.
Here’s a peak of what a couple of blocks would look like together.
Hope you like it.
What will you create?
