Here are some photos of the bullion knots that I have added to my sampler.
Bullion knot is not a new stitch to me and, as it is a very versatile stitch, I have used it on many occasions. Here are some of my favourites......
Bullion knot buds decorating a vine on one of my CQJP blocks.
A bullion knot bee which also appears on one of my CQJP blocks.
I often use them to make the bodies for butterflies but, my very favourite example of all is this little hedgehog which appears on the BCQC block I made in Kathy Shaw's lovely online class.
It took lots of bullion knots to make him!
Beautiful work, Christine and your little hedgehog looks so sweet!ReplyDelete
