Wow! What a day! I just finished my 5th art piece of the week - Yes, that's five pieces finished this week. All but one were started last Thursday. Four of the five are very small Sculpted Quilts but the fifth one is the largest I've done in the series so far. My hands are aching. But I feel like I've conquered the world!
Now on to today's stitch out. It's called Basket Weave and it features lines and lots of them.
Remember to doodle it out before you begin stitching.
This design can be stitched in just about any size. Mine features sections that are just over 1" square with lines that are a scant 1/4" apart.
To begin simply stitch wavy lines horizontally then vertically that are about 1" apart thus forming a wavy lined grid. Next go back into the first block in one corner and stitch vertical lines that are a scant 1/4" apart that follow the curve of the section. Travel along the already stitched lines to change direction.
Next, move to the next block and stitch horizontal lines that are a scant 1/4" apart following that sections curve. Continue alternating vertical then horizontal until you finish the first row of sections then move on to the next row this time begin with horizontal lines in the first section then alternate with vertical.
This is a beautiful stitch-out that yields wonderful texture.
