Working on the Apple Blossom Quilt
I'm working on the Apple Blossom Quilt.
This is the one where I have cut up an unfinished supper cloth my mother was working on about 1948 - and I am very much into minimalisation. Is that the word?
All stiches are in crochet cotton, and I am concentration on working on combinations. No buttons, beads or embellishments apart from one piece of white tatting per square.
Yet another UFO.
I am about to work the seam again, on another block, and will scan it in stages. I don't do that when I start, as I never know what is going to happen. But the directions in brief are:
1. Chevron Stitch. It helps if the capping stitches are longer rather than shorter.
Side 1. Fly Stitch with the locking stitch also going over the Chevron Stitch, then Detached Chain finished with a Pistil Stitch.
Side 2. Fly Stitch, closed with a Pistil Stitch into the V. Then another Pistil Stitch in the V formed by the Fly Stitch.
I have a few other Chevron Stitches HERE, but I need to come up with some more.
