This week, we’ll stitch two of the three bright turquoise blocks. Be careful because several of the sides are not even. I used a vintage thread called POavane for the blocks. It’s most like Overture in structure but it is a solid color. One strand is about the size of #5 pearl.
Both stitches are from volume 2 of Whimsical Stitches. Stitch the left block in Vertical Triplets, below.
Stitch the right block in Mixed Rectangles below.
