Elegant Stitches

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.

Thelma, don't you just love her book?! I bought it back when it first came out and it has some wonderful ideas.

What size waste canvas were you using? I tried 14 and it was too small for my eyes, so I now have some 8.5 and 10 to try. Thanks for sharing what you did. It looks great!

I used 10 count for these. Thanks so much for the compliments. I am enjoying her book, just wish there was more time in the day for me to do more of the stitches. Too much going on right now.
