TGIFF - Alison Glass Stitch Club

Have you joined the Alison Glass Stitch Club?  I'm playing along.  For June's project, we learned abut kantha style embroidery.

The project started out as a pillow cover, but quickly turned into a placemat.

It's basically a big running stitch.  I used a few colours of perle cotton.

I didn't finish the edges with a whipstitch.  This piece has been sitting on my coffee table for weeks, waiting to be I just machine stitched around the edges for a quick finish.

July's project is sashiko.  I purchased a sashiko kit from Red Thread Studio at QuiltCon 2020 but haven't had a chance to work on it.  Time to get stitching -- there's orange thread. 😉

  1. I would have been surprised if there wasn't orange Have fun stitching!

  2. Congrats on your finish, Anja! It looks like a great size for trying something new. Will there be more of these in your future?

  3. A bright and happy placemat! And oooh, I'm excited to see the sashiko and orange thread. :)

  4. Lovely, colorful quilt. I made my first Kantha stitched piece last year and I think I might be addicted.

  5. It will certainly brighten up a table. Looks like you achieved nice even stitches. I want to try that soon.

  6. Super nice and happy placemat! And of course, it's got orange thread! :-)
