While I was waiting for the Silk & Ivory to arrive to start the blue rug, I spent some time getting the 9 Patch Quilt started. I’ve completed the sashing between the squares and started one of the quilt squares as well.
The sashing is just Slanted Gobelin over four threads. Every 9th stitch is the orchid color I’m using in this color scheme. It was very helpful in this case. When I’ve placed six of the orchid stitches, I know I’ve reached the end of the square – 54 stitches. This made the counting for the whole project so much easier. Then I started on the Bear Paw design in one of the squares. I’ll post again on this project when another square is in place.
