Patchwork of Peace Row 5 Blue

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

The Kalem stitch (Block 14, 3rd blue block from the right) creates a wonderful pattern that looks like knitting.

Even though the Slanted Victorian Step stitch (Block 17, 6th blue block from the right) is stitched on a true diagonal, the pattern creates a more slanted appearance. Stitching on the diagonal is easier to stitch than an oblique stitch and it creates a similar effect.

The Nabuko stitch (Block 19, blue block on the far left) is also stitched on the true diagonal and creates even a more slanted appearance. I used threads quite close in color making the pattern less evident than the block with the Slanted Victorian Step.

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

12 – Splendor S965 (2 strands) and Planet Earth 6 ply Silk 1105 (2 strands)

13 – Bijoux MMT427 (4 strands) and Wildflowers 0076

14 – Bella Lusso 540

15 – Merino Wool 98L/45622 and Kreinik #12 Braid 051HL

16 – Splendor S965 (2 strands) and Entice E255 (2 rayon and 1 polyester filaments removed)

17 – Elegance E862 and Splendor S858 (2 strands)

18 – Pebbly Perle P07 (2 strands)

19 – Soie Crystale 7041 (2 strands) and Planet Earth 6 ply Silk 1105 (2 strands)

Two more rows of blue and then the border! Labor Day is just about 4 weeks away.

It is fun! Breaking it up and stitching other stuff in between sections was good for me. It seemed to be more interesting and engaging. Sticking (close) to a goal is allowing me to get it done within a reasonable time.
