CQJP 2016 January Block Seam 6 - Motif 3

In the last post about my Crazy Quilt Journal Project (CQJP) 2016 January block, I shared a sneak peek of the next step.

Using one of Sharon B.'s Crazy Quilt Template Set 2 vine shapes and an idea in the ebook she includes with the set, I created this flowery vine to cover a seam and motif area on the block.

Size 12 DMC #699 pearl cotton and a stem stitch created the vine. Pairs of detached chain stitches added leaves.

Size 8 Anchor #00047 and sets of 5 detached chain stitches created flowers. 

Size 12 DMC B5200 colonial knots made the flower centers.

Thank you for stopping by!

*Note: I am not affiliated with Sharon B.'s crazy quilt templates. I was asked to review the Set 2 templates and am having great fun playing with them in the process!

Beautiful vines! You got me looking back at the book for Set 2, and I did some fun things, too. Or they are in process. Thanks for the inspiration, and for sharing the vines.

I'm just beginning crazy quilting, so I don't have any of the stencils that are available yet. Which do you use the most? I know I could make some out of cardboard, but I'm quite lazy!

Another great piece using Sharon's stencils. I just created a vine on my current piece I'm working on but alas I can't show it because it's for the magazine.
