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.
This completes my Red, White, and Blue Crazy Quilt Journal Project Block for July…..with a final addition of a tatted Red star near the center of the block.
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.
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.
