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!

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.
