Stitch Samplers as ART!
I've been posting stitch examples lately... all in a rather academic black thread on white fabric. Rather boring but perfect for book documentation. But here's another way to create a reference library of favorite filler stitches you can hang on the wall as both art and reference. These were way fun to make... first an oversized four patch.... then a black prefused fabric cutout of what I call a STRING pattern. The string fused atop the four patch... then unique filler stitches in each quartile.
These were sold as a set... I think it's time to do something similar again. ..maybe an elongated piece with 3 4-patch sets as part of one quilt top.
