Work In Progress Wednesday - August 13

When I wanted to add more beads to my block I finally saw it was already finished. Yesterday I damp stretched it.
Today I could take a nice photo of my finished block. Just click the photo to take a closer look.

  2. It is beautiful, even with the colourful pins!
    When the light shines on it in the second picture you can appreciate the structure of the raised stitches, beads and lace

  7. I've been wondering about damp stretching my crazy blocks. I was worried about damaging any fabric that isn't normally washed. Will have to give it a go now that t've seen you do it!

  8. Yes, damp stretching is great for CQ. Just be sure your threads are colourfast, so they don't bleed on the fabric when they are wet!

    1. And the fabrics. (The stocking I made has a fancy blue fabric that is NOT colorfast. Luckily, steam ironing it made this clear when I pieced the block, so I used extra caution.)

    2. You're right! I always wash my fabrics and if they keep bleeding I don't use them, so I forgot to mention it.
