Quilted Art Project – week 3


Another week, and it has again been busier than expected.  I did manage to get some stitching done this week, and I plan to do more today. I added a few more buttons, and realize I need more lighter ones for contrast.  I finished the couching on the lavendar trim too.

I made one little grouping of green seed beads.

I added a light green button.

I have several of these plastic trim detail pieces, and the green one was sewn across a seam line.

I tried my first pink peony, with three lazy daisy stitches in the middle, and knotted stitches on the edges.  I’ll be doing more of these, but I need more pink silk ribbon.

That is it for now.  Happy stitching!

  1. Lovely! Can’t wait to see the entire piece!

  2. Carole that looks really nice. What is couching? You do so much sewing and crafting and I really enjoy seeing your creations.

  3. That is so very pretty Carole. I do agree about it needing a bit of light color and the white button really pops!!! Maybe a light pink or a very pale violet? Hope your day is relaxing for you.

  4. Such lovely embellishments appearing on your project…enjoy!

  5. It’s quite enjoyable to watch this pretty piece evolve 🙂

  6. I agree that lighter buttons will show up more. Pretty silk ribbon embroidery. I hope to attempt that some day.

  7. I love your work and watching this evolve week after week. Thanks for sharing it.

  8. It is fun to see all your stitching and embellishments. Can’t wait to see it when you have completed it.

  9. So many beautiful details and embellishments. You are doind a beautiful work.

  10. Well Good Late Evening Carole! I was on the computer for only a short while this morning and then got busy beginning to reorganize my craft/sewing storage room again! I truly did accomplish quite a lot but it sure did not seem like it when I stopped this evening. LOL. But I had expected to get back to the computer quite awhile ago, yet it is after 9 …..oh well, at least I made it!!

    The progress that you have made is fabulous! After reading all of the great comments it appears that everyone is in agreement. Plus, I will show Deanna how to do couching. Even though it has been quite some time, there are some great picture tutorials and video tutorials also that I will also show her. I still have not had the opportunity to try the ribbon embroidery, yet with your spectacular beautiful examples I have got to give it a try soon! I have however recently tried my hand at making felt flowers for a spring wreath project. They are really a lot of fun. I should have hubby set up the camera and do a video tutorial on making a few of them for my blog that is being neglected terribly.

    Thank you for sharing you fabulous project! It is looking so spectacular; I can not wait to see the completed project. Have a fantastic creative day!
