Black felt quilt - part two



Last week, I showed you most of the steps for how I constructed the top of this little black felt quilt.  Today, we'll finish it up.  Just so you know...step 15 is tedious and you should probably get a couple of audiobooks to listen to while you stitch!




13. Carefully snip the top and bottom of each multi-colored shape to expose a strip of pink fabric all the way around it.  Stitch each stack down through all layers by adding a small bead to each corner.



14. Here's what the bottom will look like, or some such similar pattern!




15. Using two strands of embroidery floss, blanket stitch each stack to the felt top.




16. Again using two strands of embroidery floss, blanket stitch another equally sized piece of black felt to the back of the piece.

Thanks Rachel. Soooo easy to do! Each time you make a cut, you shape two rows at once!

I love the wavy pattern. The wavy stripes just draw the eye over the whole piece. Lovely!

Wow, that's a lot of hand stitching but well worth it for the affect.
