Finished Stitchery

I have finished the first stitchery for this bom and still have three unrelated stitcheries to finish. I hope to have them finished by the weekend. This stitchery is designed by Kathy Schmitz as a bom of small quilts or you can put them all together for a quilt at the end.(you can find them here if you want to join in) I am leaning towards putting them all together at the end, but have not decided yet. Each block can stand on its own as a mini quilt quite nicely. All the stitcheries are worked on a cream crackled fabric with black thread. (remember the sulky thread I did not like) I am using DMC perle #8 for this and like it much better. I also changed the design a bit to suit my taste. Instead of blanket stitch for the center heart I just did back stitch. I also did not add the spikes to the outside heart as I may go back and do french knots (undecided as of yet) and I did not fill in the heart with french knots. I am very please with how it finished up.
Happy Stitching,
Wendy
