Those of us from NJNA who are attending the seminar were delighted with next year's offering. It is designed by our own Susan Hoekstra! (We still claim ownership although Susan has moved to Maine.). The design is called “Feuilles d'ananas, a Study in Values”. The layout is similar to a pineapple quilt block and the title means pineapple leaves. Susan stitched hers in different values of gold ranging from very light to very dark. The threads look like they would be floss or silk, (maybe Splendor would have the range needed) with some Kreinik and a few beads. It appears as though you would be working out from the center of the design and adding layers each month. I think it would be a fun piece to stitch and to see what happens as different stitchers use a different family of thread values. (Pictures are not permitted in the display area.)
Sounds like fun and a little smaller than Ruby Razzle Dazzle. Thanks for the preview, Sue!
It is smaller and I think it will be fun. Watching other colorways grow with the piece should be fun as well.
Count me in on this one, even if I can’t attend most meetings! I love the piece and look forward to stitching it.
I’ll be delighted to check it out online come January. I might even join the group.
