A couple of days ago I bought some gorgeous cotton and steel basics and it hasn’t taken me long to cut into them….
I did actually buy them with this project in mind, rather than stashing (although now think I should panic stash some august or mustang!)
Anyway, here’s what I made:
It’s made up of the Turquoise/minty green basics. I used a Dresden template to get the shape & stitched together in an arch.
I also got this rather gorgeous Aurifil (2320 50wt) to top stitch the arch on and the layers of echo stitching.
My favourite print is the one with metallic gold crosses, is gorgeous and I must buy more!
Here’s a few more pics:
Have you got any cotton and steel yet? Planning on stashing some away??
