My article in Embroidery Canada - Bullions
Crazy Quilting International for allowing me to use photographs of some of their beautiful work. Phyllis Latham shared the incredible little white bird on this page with me. Believe it or not, it is one long bullion stitch with 120 wraps that are then manipulated to create this bird.
I have to say I am having a lot of fun writing these articles and hope to continue with the series for a little while. My friends at Crazy Quilting International will, I hope, continue helping me out with examples of their work to use so I can show their stitching off to the world!
If you haven't tried Bullion Stitch yet - do it! I needed a hands on tutorial from my friend Ilys to get my head around this stitch initially (thank you Ilys!) but once you get the hang of it there is virtually nothing you can't do with it. Bullion Stitch is definitely one of the most versatile and creative stitch in our box of stitching tools!
