For quite some time now I’ve been thinking about joining a quilting group, I do have one that meets quite near to where I live so late last year I applied to go onto their waiting list, and although I am not officially a member yet I am able to go along to their once a month meetings as a visitor.
I went last night and this is what we did…
This is the back of the work…
and this is the template we used…
It’s called Canadian weave smocking and we just drew around the template on our fabric and stitched it in the way we were shown and voilà! A lovely textured piece of fabric.
I did have a quick look on the internet to see if there were any other patterns and it seems that there are and there are other ways of doing it which don’t use a template so I think I will experiment a bit more with it.
Not sure what I shall use it for but I really enjoyed learning something new and meeting new (and old) friends.
Has anyone else tried this technique?
Until next time,
