What materials did you use? Hand painted cotton, various types of cording, colored threads, embroidery floss

What are you most proud of? I took this piece in a different direction, made the quilt a wonky shape and hung it off-kilter. I also bent Carol's rule/wise advice about spacing the stitching (but there are no rules, so I knew I'd be okay!) and made room for the quilting step.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? After making your first Stupendous Stitching piece, make another and take it in a new direction!

How did you sew it back together? By hand or machine? A seam or just overlapping?

Hi Claire, the sewing back together part was done by machine, sewn right sides together with a small seam allowance.
