Rice stitch, loose French knots, cross stitch and rhodes stitches on liberated canvas work.

from TEN CAT GARDEN by MING HSU of Australia - a finalist in Australasian Quilt Convention challenge "TEN" - Wholecloth quilt using vintage floral tablecloth, with ten quilted cats hidden throughout the free-motion quilting. More detail shots, and others from the exhibit, at link. Less virtuoso quilters like me: Think animal line art, an extra layer of batting under that motif, with dense quilting in the background. Image search MING HSU QUILT for much more free-motion goodness!

feedly: organize, read and share what matters to you.

"Invasion 2". Redwork free-motion embroidery. Victoria Gertenbach. (Could be blackwork).

    It's so pretty! practice makes perfect. My wrist is feeling a lot better. It was like major pain nonstop for 3 months or so because of making pie crust from scratch - dough kneading... So now I can start up some hobbies again :) @Arnalda Jimenez
