Autumn saree quilt..


This is going to be my fourth saree quilt. You can see the first quilt here and the second one here and third one here.

I found these cotton saree material at the thrift store sometime ago ;one with diagonal lines and the other squares.


I thought of attempting to create something with a rustic flare.



I still do not know how the whole layout will be, I am planning as I sew along.


Learning Embroidery ..............



This weekend being extra long (civic holiday here in Canada) I had time to finish the small embroidery piece.
The three main stitches I used throughout the piece are;
Scroll Stitch 
Double knot stitch 
Coral stitch ;  all these stitches are also known in several other names as well.

Guide: READER'S DIGEST; complete book of embroidery



Thank you for stopping by today,

till next time,
xxx,
Gaia
