Year of the Stitch!

Whimsy Lane #10: First Embroidery of 2024

The first hand embroidery of 2024 is a fused art quilt called Whimsy Lane #10. The residents of Whimsy Lane live in a neighborhood of festive houses stitched with colorful threads and unusual landscaping.

The owner of Whimsy Lane #10 is an avid gardener. Her rooftop garden features pinks, a favorite flower made with a pinking blade and trimmed with fly stitches.

It may be January and freezing in Illinois but the Whimsy Lane stitcher dreams of warmer weather. While perusing seed catalogs she adds fly stitches and French knots to the sunshine.

Whimsy Lane #10 is completed with a fused binding and awaits the stitching of additional neighborhood houses in this Year of the Stitch!
