What a lovely weekend it has been! Spending time with the people you love, doing the things we love.
And too boot extra time to sew! Can’t beat that, right? So let’s start this blog post with the two tutorials!!!
Pattern DANDELION. The golden thread made me think of the dandelion flower.
Stitched on an 1 inch grid. Besides each diagonal you add two slender leaves and move on to the next diagonal.
Pattern PARIS. An elegant pattern which resembles the French pattern Fleur de Lil. Stitched on an 1 inch grid.

The stitch path for this PARIS pattern consists of two elements, a “hop-hop-up” and a loop. The loop and the “up” line up vertically. The pattern interlocks, meaning that each row moves over one grid element.
Pattern CLOVER. Stitched on a 1 inch grid with each clover a total of 4 inches.
Pattern ACCENT: Stitched on a 1 inch grid. The flower-shapes are 4 inches each. I would love to see what this pattern looks like repeated on a quilt. I like the unevenness in each loop element combined with the consistency where the points all meet up. Like mini flower explosions!
To end this gorgeous weekend, a lovely party pattern from the 1920’s!
Pattern TWENTIES. stitched on an 1 inch grid.
