Cactus Stitching #3

cactus7There are few ways to use a Size 3 pearl cotton thread, it being too bulky to draw through batting and fused fabrics. But Couch it down and distinct shapes like this spiraling sun appear in a desert scene.

cactus6A few last stitches complete my cactus landscape including this stretch of light purple desert land. The Lazy Daisy stitch topped with a French Knot allude to a scruffy plant holding out against that blasting sun. Hope to show you the final quilt soon.

  1. Can’t wait to see you in clifton Park,,,hope you bring fabric and threads to sell,,,,

  2. On your spiral sun, do you pick a center point and spiral out? Or do you set your perimeter first and spiral in to the center? Or does the stitching make a difference?
