Needlepoint and Quilting
I have to give all those Crazy Quilters a lot of credit - this technique is not so easy to adapt to needlepoint! From scouring a lot of quilting blogs and websites it seems that they take a basic embroidery stitch and embellish it with beads, ribbons,sequins, and even add additional stitches to create these elaborate seams. You can see some gorgeous examples of this on:
I found these two resources on Janes Chilly Hollow blog and they were most helpful, even though my workmanship isn't quite as precise as the stitching of these talented ladies.
Only 2 more seams to go, and then off to the finisher for final construction. Keeping my fingers crossed that the trapunto aspect of this project works.
