Lovely pins for S is for Stitch … and a giveaway!

S is for Sttich by Kristyne Czepuryk for Stash Books

It is so much fun to look back on our popular titles, such as, S is for Stitch, to see what people have been inspired to make!

And what better place to look than Pinterest! All,  Most OK, fine… Many of the books we release have dedicated Pinterest boards (and all future releases definitely will!) where we corral projects made from our titles.

See the pretty little pink ballet dress on the cover, just to the right of the title? Kristyne enlarged it by 200%, stitched it, and turned it into this:

A simple, do-able (and looks awesome because of the hand-stitching!) quilt for a baby boy! Yes, the mother wanted a ballerina dress…

For incredibly clever quilters, and to be honest, the more adventurous among us, how about adding a little bit of stitching to hexies? I see a nest, a cupcake, an umbrella, and I do believe that is a kite! The pin above is from Lori Holt of Bee in my Bonnet

True confessions: when I first read this page I thought it said ‘F is for Fart’. I have already had a good belly laugh with Kristyne over this one, so I feel OK sharing it with you! The point of this photo though, is to show you that Kristyne has included tips such as those mentioned on the page above for EVERY design in the book. She told me it was her favorite part because she was able to be really creative and write!

What about you? Have you been inspired to make something from S is for Stitch? Let us know — because of course we want to pin it! Your timing couldn’t be better—because a new Stitch-a-Long for this book has just begun! Go to Shush I’m Quilting to find more details!

    Yes I have used embroidery in my quilts and I love it!

  2. Posted September 17, 2013 at 2:08 pm | Permalink

    I LOVE adding little touches to things with hand-embroidery. Like names in different fonts, using various stitches. For very small children, I do their name somewhere in block letters. Then, for a child whose a little older, and learning to read cursive, I trot out my best Parker Penmanship, and stitch their name in flowing cursive.

    Not in quiltmaking, but in pillows and other things. My sister has finished the girly alphabet and is working on the boy one. It is so so so darling!

    I have used embroidery in my sewing and/or quilts, but it was machine embroidery. I used to do hand embroidery as a child, but it was just done however I felt like doing it. I’ve never really been taught the proper way to do the different stitches. I’d love this book to help me learn so I could teach my granddaughters

    I have not quilted much, but I do like to dabble in embroidery at a smaller scale. Thanks for the giveaway.

    I would LOVE to learn how to hand embroider like this! I do machine embroidery but it’s just not the same… I’m planning some embroidered hoops for my studio as we finish the renovations on our home. :) My plan is for them ALL to be hand embroidered. I’m even using some hand made buttons I won in another giveaway on one of them… This would be awesome because it would help me LEARN how to do what it is I want to learn to do…

    Many, many years ago I went to a library and got a book on embroidery. Being left handed the directions for me were interesting to say the least. Here I am now a quilter but my first love is embroidery.

  42. Posted September 13, 2013 at 7:09 am | Permalink

    Yes and it turned out beautiful! I am glad I took pictures before I gave it to my cousin, which now lays on their couch. I highly recommend it. It gives it a lovely texture, especially when combined with vintage chenille.

    I’m not really a quilter, so no, I haven’t used embroidery in my quilts. I did just finish a hand-applique’d alphabet chart which is sort of a quilt, I posted about it today if you want to see

    I have added stitching to all my quilts so far- whether on the body of the quilt or just in the label. It seems just one small, extra little detail that adds to the uniqueness of the quilt and lets the recipient know they are special.

    I really love embroidery I did it before quilting and well the first time I “hand-quilted” I spent hours embroidering then realized hey why is the back so ugly…every since then I’m a little scared to add embroidery unless i do it before I stitch up the fabric
