Spring Quilt Block – giant scotch with cashmere

I promised I’d be quicker with the next step! This part is similar to the previous giant reverse scotch stitch, but this time the scotch stitches are not reversed and I added blocks of cashmere stitch.

But before we go on, I made a mistake on the kind of thread used for the giant reversed scotch stitches and I want to call your attention to it. The kind of thread I used was Gumnuts Poppies, a silk/wool blend, not the stranded floss in the table. I’ll correct the instructions in the previous post as well, just wanted to make sure you were aware of it.

For today’s section, I stitched the giant scotch stitches first using Gumnuts Poppies in Medium Lemon Crush, #706. Isn’t that a bright sunny color? I love it next to the purple, reminds me even more of irises and pansies.

Notice that these blocks of giant scotch stitch are not reversed, but are all slanted the same way.

Next I used Gumnuts Buds, a silk pearl, in the same color, 706 Medium Lemon Crush, to stitch the cashmere blocks between the giant scotch stitches. These blocks are all slanted the same way, but opposite of the giant scotch.

I’m really pleased with the way this is turning out!
