“A Sheaf of Stitches” by MaryAnn

Here is my entry for the thread challenge. I call it "A Sheaf of Stitches". It's my first try at thread stitching so it's certainly not perfect, but I had fun.  FullSizeRender (3)It's 6 1/2 x 13 inches.

Dimensional Machine Embroidery

Bird of Paradise by Claudia M

Bird of Paradise
I struggled with an idea for this challenge since I did not want to use a "thread" type of block.   I decided I wanted to use my "orts" from embroidery that I have been saving (those short bits of fibers from cross stitch, etc) but needed to figure out a quilt pattern.  After searching through photos, I found one of a Bird of Paradise plant that I saw while in San Diego last year.  image1 (7)I sketched out a simplified version of the photo and created this.  It's about 14 1/2 inches square.  This is my first attempt at using the faux piping binding on a quilt...really like how that worked out.
