American Patchwork is Finished!

I last told you about this canvas project on June 10th.

I have been stitching most evenings and got it finished and even put it into the tray!!

This picture was taken without the glass, so you can actually see the stitches.

The project was designed to fit onto a Sudberry House Shaker box, but I already had this Sudberry Petite Serving Tray. The opening of the tray is larger than the Shaker box, so at the teacher's suggestion I traced the oval onto my project and added to the squares as needed to make it larger. This took a bit of work, some squares needed to be make larger or totally made up since the original called for basket weave to fill in smaller areas. But it came out nicely in the end!!

It was fun to do and I put the instructions into a portfolio, so it is kind of like a stitch book now.

Now to put away any leftovers of the 27 different threads that were used for this project!!

Happy Stitching!!
