Saltwater Scrapbook - Part 1
This project is a collaboration between myself and Lindy Stitches. The idea was inspired by folk art quilts - I love the way individual blocks are combined into a harmonious whole. There are 9 "block" designs in total - 4 in this chart and 5 in "Saltwater Scrapbook - Part 2" from Lindy Stitches. They are all the same size, and use the same threads. Stitchers can mix and match the blocks into ornaments, drums, little "quilts" - whatever takes their fancy.
The models are stitched on 40 count "Silvermist" linen from Fabrics By Stephanie. The total is stitch count is 123 wide x 123 high (which includes all 4 blocks - each block is 61 x 61). The models are stitched with a mix of DMC and overdyed cotton threads.
DMC - 520, 523, 779, 3064, 3770, 3821, 3861, 3865
