Stitch & Slash »
Type of item: Home Decor
Batik fabrics, various threads.
What was your inspiration?
I made these blocks as a test for the Stitch and Slash technique, mostly trying to decide what order to layer my fabrics. But I liked all of them so I put them together into one piece.
What are you most proud of?
Since this didn't start out as a planned project, I didn't always do things in the most logical order...so I'm glad it all worked out and I'm happy with the result.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
At every step, I found I was second guessing myself. Should I slash more, should I add more decorative stitches, should I add more quilting? In the end I realized that as Carol Ann Waugh says, "More is more." Each time I added more elements, I liked the piece even better. So don't hold back....just go for it!
