Stupendous Stitching: Adventures in Surface Design »
InstructionsAfter adding the couching, decorative stitching and a bit of hand embroidery I sliced it up sewed it back together. Then I added more couching, decorative stitching, hand embroidery and tiny enhancements with paint. I put a sleeve on the back, deliberately hanging it unevenly to enhance it's unusual shape.
Style: Mod, Funky, Casual, Whimsical

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!
