The Spring Quaker Ball is a dimensional needlework piece that, when completely assembled will create a ball that is approximate 6” in diameter. Each ball is made up of 12 squares, 6 Octagons and 8 Hexagons to be stitched on 2 different colors of Jobelyn even weave: Denim Blue and Water Lily. As the Quaker Ball project is an examination of a wide variety of counted needlework stitches, we will focus the class on some of the more novel and challenging stitches, and tips / tricks for final assembly. The fibers used are DMC floss and perle cotton, and SULKY 12wt petite cotton, along with several bead types from Mill Hill.
Kit includes: Everything required to stitch and assemble one Quaker Ball: 28 count fabric, fibers, beads and embellishments, needles, stuffing, backing stabilizer and clips to use when pressing.
Please bring to class the usual stitching supplies, hoop or other stabilization system to hold work, sharp scissors, pen or pencil for note taking, plus lighting and magnification if needed.
