For a long time Linda Poole posted a Color Fix at the end of each blog post. I’ve blogged about how much they’ve inspired me. I find stitching like this just fun. It’s a good way to figure out what a thread does, and approximate tension settings for said thread. Then there’s batting, I can explore how batting and thread work together and how the stitching is defined – does it sink in, or sit on the surface?
Stitch outs make a great reference library. So, starting mid-July I’m going to start a “Block of the Month” here on the blog. It’ll definitely be different. Stay tuned for details over the next couple of weeks.
