SUE SPARGO CHICKS wool applique quilt stitched by Uschi continues today. Remember, you can find all the posts pertaining to this project under wool applique in the right sidebar. I am so enjoying the photos of this project – there is such variety.
The chick on the left has a lovely velvet wing tacked down using cross stitches randomly placed. It is embellished using a tubular ribbon circle (gathered). The border is a chain stitch using rayon thread. The body is accented with French knots using a rayon cord.
The blue chick has various Palestrina stitch rows on both the body and wing. The wing is bordered with a beaded coral stitch.
The green chick body is accented with woven wheels using perle cotton, fly stitch with French knots and bordered with a beaded coral stitch.
I had a comment about the feet previously – all the feet are stitched using bullion stitches – delightful!
Thanks for sharing this Uschi 🙂
