A couple of years ago the CyberPointers Chapter of ANG decided we were going to create a project in honor of ANG’s 40th Anniversary. An open competition was held for designs and my design, “Ruby Ribbons,” won.
That’s it pictured here. It’s based on a 1930′s quilt block and features two red ribbons curling around a background that moves from white in the center to black at the edges.
The design consists of four panels with 64 blocks in each. Every block has a different stitch, for over 250 needlepoint stitches. They use all kinds of different techniques, stitches and threads.
It was auctioned off at the ANG Seminar last month.
CyberPointers has created an ebook of the stitches used in the project that has close-up pictures of each block, information about the threads used to stitch it and a diagram of the stitch. It’s a grand and affordable stitch dictionary.
The book is available for $15 as a PDF or $20 for the PDF on CD and is a fund-raiser for the chapter. You can order it on this page.
There is so much wonderful information here, it should be in your stitching library.
