Blackwork – Embroidery

By Blackwork EmbroideryWith 3 comments

Veronica came into Patch n Quilt when i was teaching there on Saturday to show Mary her blackwork embroidery.  So glad that Mary brought it into the classroom to show us.  The photos that I took did not do it justice.

It is her own design that she has been working on for two years.  She wanted to replicate a drunkard’s path patchwork quilt.  So, each  half of a square has its partner elsewhere in the piece.  And she changed the direction of each block so it wouldn’t be too uniform.  The stitching is incredible – there is so much to see, from the tiny circles to the filled in stitches.  If you can enlarge the photo please do so and see the magnificent work.
