Carole Samples' book, Treasury of Crazy Quilt Stitches, is a fantastic resource! And the woman is a true inspiration. Such a gentle, kind spirit she has. A small group of friends have come together to practice using this book as a guide. My intent is to draw a diagram of each of the stitches using rulers and templates to make them correctly, do practice stitches on Aida or other even weave cloth, then put them to use on a sampler or actual block.
Starting at the beginning with Primary Stitches, 1-14, then 15-27, these are my samples of 1a Single Stitches.
The next section, 1b, are the Arrow Stitches.
The final section of Group I - Primary Stitches, are the Fan Stitches.
