I had lots of idea’s for this design challenge, but most of them are very time consuming. So I decided to combine this challenge with something on my to-do-list:
a fabric book with CQ seams on
Aida. This is the first CQ seam on the first page.
First I stitched
herringbone squares with perle 5.
Then I added herringbone
squares on point with cotton a broder.
Inside the herringbone
squares I stitched 4 detached chain stitches . . .
. . . and 4 straight
stitches. Both are done with 1 thread of stranded floss.
Then I finished it with a
French knot in DMC 80.
Take a closer look at
this seam here.
