Updated April 10, 2020. Here’s part 2 of this great sampler. Find part 1 last Tuesday (April 7). Find Part 3 next Tusday, April 14.
Here are the second two squares of the Mod Sampler Quilt. One is a check, the other a stripe. Although I haven’t stitched them yet, they will go in diagonal rows down the quilt.
I’m not entirely happy with the yellows I picked. There’s not enough contrast. While I know there isn’t much margin for contract in yellow, I think I can do better. So I’m going to pull out the duller yellow and replace it.
But I didn’t want to keep you waiting to do more. I’ll update with a picture of the quilt so far in a couple of days.
The checked block is stitched in this version of Genny’s Scotch Stitch. The original stitch goes over six threads, this goes over 5, so the longest stitch has been taken out.
By dividing some of the longer stitches, a pretty pattern is made within each block. I love this idea and have made many variations of this stitch.
This block is stitched in orchid.
The striped block uses Alternating Diagonal Gobelin over 5. Each stripe is stitched in a different direction. This block is yellow.
In the second row, the check is stitched in yellow, the stripe in apricot.
In the third row, the check is stitched in apricot, the stripe in red.
