I was looking for some slow stitching inspiration earlier in the year, and heard about the Alison Glass Stitch Club on Instagram.
For 6 months, members are sent a pdf magazine. A different stitch style is featured each month, with articles, beautiful photography, project tutorials and plenty of links for further reading.
We looked at Kantha first. I’ve enjoyed hand quilting in this style before, but never made it the main feature of a project, and I absolutely loved stitching this.
Alison’s project suggestion involved stitching different coloured strips together, so it was great for using up some scraps. Some of the strips are pieced from several fabrics. Then the stitching is done in complementary colours over each strip.
My first project was to make a bed cover for Hetty – which she seems very happy with!
I didn’t want to stop there, so I made a cushion for my Mum in her favourite colours. It was a very enjoyable month, and exactly the inspiration I was looking for.
