Circles and seeding

Here is shown, a pieced and seamed stitch sample with wrapped running stitch circles surrounded by seeding stitches to enclose and draw attention to negative space.

I'm exploring the use of seeding and the way placement of individual stitches affects the shape produced, the way it gives a sense of flow and movement, and how stitching across joins unifies and connects work.

And in the second sample (still work in progress), I've used rough-edged fabric pieces placed more randomly. There are also variably sized running stitches and tiny seeding stitches to see how small they can become.

(Left clicking on one of the images will enlarge and allow the stitches to be seen more clearly)

    1. Thank you, Liz. These are part of a small series of samples I'm making, playing with stitch and colour and the mixture of commercial and my own printed or painted fabrics - hopefully for Inhabit in the end!
