Early this morning, I finished highlighting the applique on this piece with Kreinik metallic #4 braid:
Don't forget, I will put together a simple tutorial for Broiderie Perse and post it sometime this coming week. I'm hoping there are some stitchers out there who will give it a try and send me photos for the Fall issue of CQ Quarterly.
I'm not going to share the entire block at this time but there are a few other things I thought I would discuss as I work on this.
I have one seam that I embroidered on this piece that does not show up well. Rather than pulling it out (which I almost never do), I will show you how I make it work using beads. It's all about working with color.
Every crazy quilt block offers some unique challenges. I've kind of gotten away from sharing my works in progress but I think it's time to get back to that. I'm sure some of the solutions that I use to deal with problem areas will useful to other crazy quilters!
