I completed my Dark Dusty crazy quilt late in 2013. This is some of the stitching on Block 10. I experimented with a loose bullion stitch demonstrated by French needleartist, Cecile Franconie. She has written several books, sadly for we anglophones, only in French. The “bleuets” are Cecile’s version of cornflowers. They were fun to stitch although somewhat time consuming. I used perle cotton and accented with a machine metallic thread. You can watch how to create these “bleuets” on Cecile’s video. It is in French but I think you’ll get the idea.
