I hope you aren’t getting tired of seeing white samples. Perhaps it’s to make up for all those color samples that happened before.
This one is trapunto. I used wool to stuff with and I can see the change in color of the “white” wool through the silk that is on top. It’s not a big deal but you can see the edges where the wool didn’t fill the stitched shape completely.
This one is shadow quilting. I used a heavy interfacing to cut out the bark shapes and then back stitched around them.
Have a great weekend!
Not easy to photograph! I like the way the shadows show on the white and the way the wool changes the white of the silk. I hope you enjoyed your slow stitching on the second one with all that back-stitch.
Thanks Lyn. Taking photos of all white samples is a challenge. It was really hard to see where to stitch on the back stitch one. I used a light box beneath the sample during stitching to see the stitching edge better.
What a good idea!
I particularly like the shadow stitch sample. Working over a light box? Wow you do have patience.
Thanks Antje, I like that one too. Stitching over the light box actually helped with the patience part, otherwise I would have been pulling my hair out. 😉
So interesting to see the different whites and textures. I like the quilting shadow.
