New Stitch on the Block

I have begun work on a new DYOB.
(Do Your Own Block)
with the Yahoo Group

First you create a block to keep and
a block to swap.
Here is the block I have created to swap.
Each week a different stitch is called to
be used on your block.
The first stitch for this block was,
called by Margreet,
the Herringbone Ladder Stitch.
Maureen picked the next stitch
the Basque Stitch.
The stitching is not complete as
shown here.  The next step is to
take  the stitches and embellish
them.  Take them from plain to
fancy.
I will post those additions soon!

Love to all,
Deb

Love the muted colors and design of your piece. I have yet to finish the crazy quilt block I started. I am so bad with following stitch patterns. I just want to make things up as I go along. :/ Happy stitching! Best wishes, Tammy

I like what you did. Have you decided what you are going to do with all your hearts and blocks?

What a terrific idea! I love the idea of one to keep and one to give. And I also love the idea of people calling the stitches. It will be wonderful to follow along and see where it goes.

Eileen Bergen said...

That's quite a challenge, Deb, - not knowing what stitch will be called for next.

How can one assure a pleasant overall design? You've done beautifully so far. I'm impressed!

This will be a lovely swap for some lucky lady.. your stitches already look lovely cannot wait to see them embellished... happy stitching

Sherry said...

I think this would be so much fun to do but must stick to what I can handle for now. Your work is so nice, as usual. I will look forward to seeing your finished project.

Createology said...

What an interesting swap challenge. One to keep and one to give is a great way to not leave yourself out as we always tend to do. Not knowing which stitches until revealed each week makes it all the more exciting. Happy stitching to you...
