CQJP and TAST week 30

 

The week 30 stitch for July Take A Stitch Tuesday http://pintangle.com  is Oyster Stitch. I struggled with this one as you can see.

I used the Oyster Stitch on my 4th quarter of my July Crazy Quilt Journal

Project  http://www.cqjp2012.blogspot.com/   I also tatted another star from Heather’s – Elmo’s Snowflake pattern, a blue one.

CQJP and TAST week 29

 

Take A Stitch Tuesday  http://pintangle.com/ week 29 was another stitch I liked doing.  It was  another new one for me…Basque Stitch from the Basque area of Spain.

The third quarter of my Crazy Quilt Journal Project http://pintangle.com/  used the Basque stitch and I also added a little rick rack, again in red, white and blue.  For this months tatting I made a white star from the Elmo’s Snowflake pattern by Heather.

CQJP and TAST week 28

I really enjoyed the stitch for week 28 of Take A Stitch Tuesday http://pintangle.com/.  It was Up and Down Buttonhole Stitch.  I had never done this stitch before and don’t think I exactly followed the directions but it turned out the same.

The second quarter of my Crazy Quilt Journal Project block for July  http://www.cqjp2012.blogspot.com/  used the Up and Down Buttonhole Stitch.  It was nice to have a stitch I enjoyed after my struggle last week.

Again I used the red, white, and blue Perle Cotton and also continued with the lace used last week.

I am enjoying working on my  July Red, White, and Blue block.

CQJP and TAST week 27

 

Week 27 of Take A Stitch Tuesday http://pintangle.com/  gave us the Bonnet Stitch, an old stitch used on baby bonnets.

This has been the hardest yet for me.  I had to look at a number of different illustrations and it still took many tries for me to finally get it.

Since this Block for the Crazy Quilt Journal Project  http://www.cqjp2012.blogspot.com/  is for July I decided to use Red, White, & Blue for my  fabric colors.  I used red, white, and blue Pearl Cotton, size 8 to make the Bonnet Stitch.  I also added some red and white lace to this 1st quarter of my July Block.
