What are you most proud of? The spontaneity of it... I mostly work in neutrals and classic designs, so this was fun for me. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just have fun!

Stupendous Stitching

Online Class

Stupendous Stitching

with Carol Ann Waugh

  • I pieced 1-1/2 strips of various batiks together for my background fabric. I used various cords and ribbons for the couching
  • and Isacord embroidery thread for all the decorative stitching. I'm not quite done filling in the background quilting
  • but this is going to be the front of a project bag (tote) when I'm finished.

Q&A with CJ Tinkle

Carol Ann Waugh asked:
Beautiful! Thanks for posting. i will try to find the Hoopsisters Battilizer. Was this easy to hand embroider through?
CJ Tinkle answered:
I skipped the hand embroidery Carol Ann, I don't do anything by hand! There is zero puckering with the Battilzer, try it I think you will like it! Thanks for a most inspirational class!
sharking58749350 asked:
What is Hoopsisters Battilizer? How do you use it and what does it do? I guess I'm asking how is it different from the fusible interfacing that we've been using for our Stupendous Stitching?
CJ Tinkle answered:
http://www.hoopsisters.com/battilizer-5-yards/ Battlizer is batting and stabilizer combined into one product.
