Patchwork of Peace, Row 2-White

Filed under: ANG Main Line Stitchers Chapter, Patchwork of Peace

I thought I’d try to stitch a block a day. At this rate, I’ll be done July 26, 2019. But, finishing on July 4 would be nice. Or, September 2, 2019 for Labor Day. I think Memorial Day would be overly optimistic. We’ll see how it goes.

Starting with the block on the right (#1) moving to the left (#11), I used the following threads (1 strand unless noted):

1 – DMC #8 Ecru and DMC Floche Blanc

2 – Soie Cristale 0057 and Renaissance Delight Shimmerlite 01

3 – DMC Floche Blanc and DMC #8 B5200

4 – Designers Dream D02 and Treasure Braid Petite PB10

5 – Wikdflowers 000 and Silk Lame Braid Petite SP100

6 – Trebizond 125, Pashmina 000, and Pashmina 261

7 – Renaissance Delight Shimmerlite 01, Bella Lusso 001, and Burmilana 3845

8 – Soie Cristale 0057 and Treasure Braid Petite PB10

9 – Subtlety 4899

10 – DMC Floche Blanc and Sparkle Braid SK06

11 – Gloriana 261 and Wildflowers 000

Most of the time, when I stitch over one canvas thread, I repeat the stitch for better coverage.

Very easy to follow the instructions from the supplements (Connie sells them at Nashville Needleworks) and a fun way to try different stitches.

Looks good. Did you know Designers Dream D02 is discontinued. Hope you have enough in your stash to complete the project. I’m now using Bella Lusso color #0 on my projects that call for Designers Dream (mostly on the older Janet Zickler Casey santas).

Did not know. I can see why you’d use Bella Lusso as a substitute. Since each block is different, it doesn’t matter if I run out but good to know. Thanks Brenda.
