When I teach my Striped Pieced Landscape class I usually create my sample piece from my head, but I came across this postcard bought on a holiday in France years ago (pre teaching workshop days) and I could see what a great striped piece it would make.
This is one of my samples completed.
Here is another. Note the addition of a bit of hand stitching in this one. Was that my idea?
Sadly not! I copied it from one of the ladies at the workshop I taught in Reading a couple of weeks ago.
This is her piece. Isn't it great?
That is why I like teaching this class, because I come away with new ideas too :D
Here is a close up of the stitching.
Why do I only see those loose threads once I have uploaded a photo?!!!
