Stitch Bible

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Finishing the Stitch Bible! It took me over two months to complete - usually did one or two pages before starting my machine work for the day. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take your time - do a little bit one or two times a week. As you complete each page, stack them, trim them, and then do the finishing all at one time.

What you will need

  • kona cotton
  • heavy-weight fusible interfacing
  • thread
  • cording
  • grommets
  • 2" binder rings

Q&A with ConnieofHH

Carol Ann Waugh asked:
You deserve 100 stars. Maybe 1,000 stars! Wow. What a big project to undertake. Now, I can't wait to see what you create with all that inspiration!
ConnieofHH answered:
Thank you, Carol Ann. I have used the stitch bible already. It makes it easier to see the stitches that are double or triple stitched (and stand out better). I have my piece of batik ready to go. :-) Great class!
Pam Sews asked:
Connie, you make me want to start mine all over again! :-D So beautifully done. I like how you turned corners and used more than one design per line. (I also wish I had used gorgeous colors instead of scraps...but too late to start over and keep sanity!) Definitely a "1,000 star" project. Your work is always SO beautiful! Also anxious to see your Stupendous Stitching!
ConnieofHH answered:
Thanks Pam. I did start one when I first got my machine but did it on cheap muslin and I soon lost interest in it. You never know you might be inspired to do some fancy couching around your pages to jazz up what you have already done!
Judy Salb asked:
Love it. Your numbers came out so clearly on your fabric. May I ask what fabric pen you used please. Judy
ConnieofHH answered:
Thank you, Judy. I used a Sharpie Ultra Fine Marker to write the design numbers on the fabric.
