Patchwork of Peace Row 2 Blue

In honor of 4th of July, I’m posting an update today and will be working on the next row! Thanks to all the service members past and present.

The wavy part of the Couching Variation (Block 12, 1st blue block from the right) was fun to stitch and I like the effect of the pattern. More than just a little bit of the canvas shows which I didn’t care for. So, I added a single strand of Splendor under the laid thread which helped a little. The wavy part used differently could be even more interesting. Maybe fill areas with beads or staggered to look like water.

Then, the adjacent Slanted Gobelin Variation (Block 13, 2nd blue block from the right) looked too heavy using Entice as it comes off the card. So, I removed 2 rayon and 1 polyester filaments from the strand (gently pull each out separately). I did the same thing with Entice used in Block 18, 2nd blue block from the left.

The Alternating Oblong Cross (Block 19, 1st blue block from the left) has just a little canvas showing a non-direction pattern.

Starting with the blue block on the right (#12) moving to the left (#19), I used the following threads (1 strand unless noted):

12 – Planet Earth 6 ply Silk 1105 (2 strands), Au Ver A Soie 100/3 SMS510 (2 strands), Merino Wool 98R/45622, and Splendor S965

13 – Entice E255 (2 rayon and 1 polyester filaments removed)

14 – Splendor S1002 (2 strands) and Bijoux MMT427 (4 strands)

15 – Bella Lusso 540 and Soie Cristale 7041 (2 strands)

16 – Elegance E862 and Wildflowers 0076

17 – Splendor S858 (2 strands), Pebbly Perle P07 (2 strands), and Kreinik #12 Braid 051HL

18 – Entice E212 (2 rayon and 1 polyester filaments removed) and Splendor S965 (2 strands)

19 – Planet Earth 6 ply Silk 1106
