Expansive

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!

Q&A with Jo-Mo

Carol Ann Waugh asked:
Wow. How do I love this piece??? I'm speechless. You are so creative and your work is wonderful. I love your breaking of "no rules". Keep going!
Jo-Mo answered:
Thanks Carol! There's so much room to take your method and run with it. I had so much fun mixing it up a bit :-)
Morag2504 asked:
Wow. This looks good!
Jo-Mo answered:

Kathy Riggs asked:
Really, really nice. My favorite so far. :-)
Jo-Mo answered:
Thank you Kathy, it was very fun to make :-)
Marie Withrow asked:
WOW! This is my favorite example of this technique.... AMAZING!
Jo-Mo answered:
Thanks Marie, hours of hand stitching fun brought it to life :-)
TerriLaycock asked:
I love what you have done here...as I was wondering about crossing the couching. Hope mine looks any where near as good as this when I start :) And i love the vibrant colours you have used and the contrast in the backing fabric. You must be more than a little proud of yourself :)
Jo-Mo answered:
Thanks Terri! As long as you go slowly when couching over the crossing point of the two pieces of cord you should be okay :)
