Today Sharon is highlighting a way to work a wisteria like growth over your block.
This is a cluster French knots worked in like a bunch of grapes.
Wisteria is my all time favourite flower / seam treatment to do on blocks..
My first picture is from a RR I am at present taking part of.
The print here was crying out for a wisteria vine.
I worked the vine trailing up out of the pot, over the top and down the other side to frame the print.
I have used a lovely #8 variegated silk thread called "Wisteria" from Hand-dyed Fibres...It is just so lovely and soft to work with.
Nayy and all that..I just love using this thread!.
This second picture is off my Victorian Fan Quilt
Here you can see the wisteria vine much better.
I have used the same silk thread, with 4mm green silk ribbon for the leaves, and two strands of green DMC thread for the stem stitch vine..
