I purchased Pam Kellogg's ebook Elegant Stitches. These stitches are made by using waste canvas to do your stitching on. I made this block just playing around with colors and just experimenting with color with the threads. Keeping with what Judith Baker Montano tells in piecing a block,,contrasting cool colors with warm, I am playing with this same process in my thread choices. These two seams were done using Pam's patterns in her ebook.
