Here is my completed block for Week 2 of the Doodle Stitch-Along (yes, I know that we are already into Week 4, but I’m happy to be as far along as Week 2!). I really love how this one turned out.
The pattern was for the boy and girl. I added the butterflies from the Week 3 motif, and then I just freehanded the grass and brown toadstool, as I thought they looked better standing on something instead of floating in the air.
I used a long-and-short stitch for the red hood and the boy’s shorts, the hair is a stem stitch on the inside, and just two rows of back stitch on the outline, and the rest is pretty much just back stitch with some french knots here and there. The leaf and mushroom stem were satin stitch.
You can download the Week 3 motifs (mushrooms and a tree trunk house) and the Week 4 motif (mushroom house) on the Lark blog. I made up my quilt blocks for Block 3 and 4 this morning so I’m ready to get started on the tree trunk house tonight!
