Course Objectives, Avocado

The colorful floral print is one of the two quilt fabric options you'll see in my samples throughout this course

Now that the formalities are behind us, let's have some fun!

Welcome to the Stitchery Crossover in Color, Avocado Course.

For Mia Rosa or Piazza, either of the prerequisite courses for any of the advanced Stitchery Crossover courses, we used a chart that was specifically designed with an empty space between the stitched center motif and the stitched border for the quilt fabric border.

In this course, we'll use a chart that was not designed with a space reserved for a quilt border. We'll have to create one.

The Stitchery Crossover in Color, Avocado course will walk you through the process to  use a stitchery chart that was not designed for the Stitchery Crossover technique. The result will be a Stitchery Crossover quilt block that incorporates, from the inside out, a center motif, a quilt fabric border, a stitched border, and a quilt fabric outer border.

The chart has no planned spaces for quilt borders.

Each Stitchery Crossover in Color course (each course sold separately) will include detailed stitch sequence suggestions and bonus technique instructions featuring elements from the featured Study in Colour chart, designed by Peppermint Purple.

One, A Few, or All Twelve

Choose one or more Stitchery Crossover in Color courses, or embark on a longer-term project to make all twelve featured Stitchery Crossover in Color blocks to make a lap-sized quilt.

For each course, you will be in charge of choosing your stitchery fabric (including color and stitch count), your quilt fabric or fabrics, and color and brand of fibers to stitch your unique project. At the same time, you'll take advantage of the tools in your Mia Rosa Stitchery Crossover or your Piazza Stitchery Crossover kit for the technique elements.

Lots of Options for You

  • Make one block following the instructions in this course.
  • Make multiples of this block for bigger projects.
  • Select a handful of courses, each featuring a different block chart.
  • Choose all 12 courses to make a 12-block quilt.
  • Go rogue and choose from the many other Study in Colour charts not featured within these courses to apply the the lessons you've learned to create blocks and projects.

The choices truly are endless!

Resources and step-by-step instructions will guide you through constructing your block from start to finish.

The next three topics provide an overview of what's to come, followed by a review of supplies you may already have, depending on which prerequisite course you completed, and supplies you'll need for the block. After that we'll get stitching!

Once again, welcome to the next exciting step in your Stitchery Crossover journey.
