100 Details In 100 Days - Day 87


Fractal 13
Originally uploaded by Kitty And Me.
I call this, "Butterfly In A Snowstorm"! Another of my fractal designs from several years back. I hope you can use it in your crazyquilts, scrapbooking or altered art projects. Print this design on a commercial inkjet fabric sheet and work into your projects.

On a bit of a discouraging note, it's come to my attention that there are several complaints floating around out there regarding my fractal designs and why I'm not offering charted motifs at the moment.

I'd like to say that the complimentary patterns that I've been offering here throughout the 100 Days project have had nothing to do with free designs nor have they had anything to do with counted cross stitch.

My intention for offering charted borders and motifs as well as outline embroidery patterns and fractal designs have been my way of contributing to the 100 Days project for the purpose of sharing my abilities and ideas with crazyquilters. And the purpose of this blog has never been for the sole sake of promoting my work as a charted designer. It's purpose from the very beginning was to share my love of various forms of needlework with other stitchers and that will remain the focus of this blog.

I have truly enjoyed the 100 Details In 100 Days project. I'd like to say thank you so much to Sharon B for bringing us all together with such a wonderful and fun project focusing on crazyquilt details. I have seen some truly magnificent crazyquilt work come from this project.

When Sharon decides what the next project will be and when it starts, I've decided to contribute by sharing patterns for making your own crazyquilt embellishments. I have loads of really neat ideas including a tutorial on making "Dryer Sheet Flowers".

In the meantime, for the last few days of the 100 Details In 100 Days project, I will not be doing any more charted motifs. My focus will be on these beautiful fractal designs, charted seam treatments and outline embroidery.

Last but not least, I'd like to say that I've put alot of thought, effort and work into these patterns and designs. On average, it has taken at least an hour of my time each day to do the majority of these designs and post them here. I planned well in advance for my trips, making sure that I had a pattern posted for each day of my absense and then to hear the complaints that I mentioned in the beginning of this post saddens me greatly. I'd like to remind everyone that a little bit of gratitude goes a long way!

June, if you have a Walmart near by, I know mine carries them. They really are wonderful for crazyquilts!

Dear Pam,
I truly welcome the fractal designs as something new, different and very unique. There isn't always much new under-the-sun so to speak and even if I'm not going to use the fractals today, the fact that you posted them gives me this interesting imagery in my mind that I can always go back to. Bad grammar, but you know what I mean, I hope.

Pam, I am truly grateful for the fractals as well as the other elements you have shared. Yes, I am a cross stitcher and love the counted charts but I am also trying to broaden my knowledge and techniques and I am looking forward to using the fractals in my crazy quilts as well as making some greeting cards with them. A very big Thank You to you and Sharon and others who have shared with us over the last 80+ days.

I've to say that I don't understand those complaints. If person reads your blog one will easily find out what is idea behind 100x100 project.

I'm a cross stitcher in general, but after finding your blog I've become more and more interested of crazy quilting and I think that I'll have to give it a try.
Thanks to you and your wonderful designs (I really love those fractals)! :)

Hi Pam - I think it is fantastic that your creativity isn't limited to counted designs. Don't pay attention to the complainers!

Pam....I just wanted to let you know that you are truely appreciated, at least by me. Over the years you have contributed a lot to my knowledge and love of many types of crafts, not just cross stitch.

Smile, I am sure many agree with me!!!
