Closer View of Stitching

First off, thankyou very much to the lovely ladies who have welcomed me and made such positive comments on my blocks...it is so encouraging, especially as I was a little dubious about using anything other than the needdleturn method. Several ladies have requested a closeup photo of my machine stitching which I am now posting. It is very simple to do, and just uses a buttonhole stitch.

  1. Kali it's wonderful! Are you using freezer paper or Steam a Seam?

  2. Very very nice stitching! I am doing that also and more often than not, get discouraged because I don't do as good a work as someone else. But I tell myself, I am just learning this and It'll look better and better as time goes by! Love doing it, it's very fun! In my project, I use Steam-A-Seam. is that what you use? I don't like using freezer paper.

  3. Thank you for the close up view of your stitching, this is something I will practice on my machine, I thought you used zig zag but button hole naturally makes more sence.
    Oh yeah.. great work on your block thanks for sharing.

  4. I have been looking at this blog for about a month and finally broke down and ordered the pattern. It arrived today and I can't wait to get started. Love reading all your comments, encouragement and tricks of the trade. Becky

  5. what a beautiful choice of colours you have used kali, what thread do you stitch in? It looks to me like invisible thread?
