Stars are continuing.
Because I need a million and I am counting the ways.
The field of stitch is a nice less dense way, to create shapes, focus, and texture without covering the background. I discussed this a while back in Small Journeys, here, naming it at times in the past as Coloring Book Quilting and the Snow Globe effect.
It works well here, because I often use thread beads as stars, points of light I guess. And now the star is made up of stars. Stardust. This is an easy way to transform one shape into another. I can imagine other ways too, can you? There is a sort of vibrating outward going on. This resist dyed square is a bit bigger. 2" Still shibori dyed, and the center is a field of stacked running stitch (which is really a form of Kantha worked very close together). I've used fields of stitch so much, it has really become part of my stitching style.
I need to dye more of these larger squares. It's warm outside. I'll go check the vat.
Here is another star with a field of running stitch. The fields of stitch can be design and the quilting stitch at the same time. I love when design is useful.
Simple really, but so cool.
It just so happens that this piece will become the center of the Endless Wishing Cloth. A celebration in Old Sky.
Ha! How things eventually come together...
A wishing cloth is a great project. Make a wish, stitch it up, sew it on. It'll grow faster than you think. And it might be shelter from a storm.
A little talking, despite the construction going on in the background, towards the end. Somebody is building a house way too big for my liking. But hey, Feel Free I say.
