National Sewing Month

Day 15

Question: How do you choose a name for your project? Sometimes I choose a name by an item in the project, in this case I chose the name from one of the embroidery threads.

African Sunset by Christen Brown

The blocks in this crazy-pieced quilt are all comprised of Hoffman batik fabrics, except for the darkest one, shown in four of the blocks, it is a batik from Bali. The embroidery was worked in Wildflower threads by the Caron Collection. Each of the threads have a unique name, one of them was called African Sunset, and the name stuck!

You can find this piece in my new book, Hand Embroidery Dictionary by C&T Publishing.

Happy Stitching, ~Christen
