A few weeks ago Carole Brungar in New Zealand had the idea to make a quilt for herself and to ask her blogger friends to each contribute a square using fabric and thread provided by herself. I’ve just had an email form Carole to tell me that my contribution has arrived so I can show you my square. I was stumped at first for what to do, especially as I could only use the one thread that Carole had supplied, but then I thought I’d do a little garden. You can tell I’m not a true embroiderer as I don’t think there’s even a name for some of the stitches I’ve used but basically I played about with detached chain stitch. If you pop over to Carole’s blog you can scroll down her sidebar and see all the squares she has received so far. I’m looking forward to seeing Carole’s finished quilt and what a lovely reminder of people you have ‘met’ around the world!
While you’re visiting with Carole have a look round her blog, it’s very varied and she has some beautiful work to share.
