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.
