Classic Quilt Ornaments


Classic Quilt Ornaments were inspired by traditional patchwork designs and can be adapted for a wide variety of projects including ornaments, box tops or they can be combined into pictures. Several color combinations are offered in the instructions.
Classic Quilt Ornaments were stitched with DMC floss, DMC metallic and Kreinik Fine (#8) Braid; suggestions for substituting Anchor floss, Au Ver a Soie and Caron silks are included.  These designs combine areas of solid satin stitches with openwork that allows the canvas to show through and an interesting technique that uses gold metallic top-stitching to mimic quilting lines and a running stitch border that looks like couched ribbon.
