WOW: Golden Tapestry Still Working

WOW: Work in Progress on Wednesday

I've been making progress on my Golden Tapestry.  Ten blocks done now.

Each block takes a very long time to stitch. Especially since the gold thread is metallic and has kinked and broken on me several times already.  When the thread comes off the cone, it still has a curl to it as it is a wire-based-thread.  I've played with having the thread feed from several different positions. Everything I tried works for a while, but then the thread will eventually un-loop from its position and fail.  This last way I've tried has been the best way for me to thread the metallic thread so far.  It is not really how the thread stand is supposed to be used, but it has worked really well to relax the metallic thread as it feeds through to the machine.


Some progress photos:

First six block panels stitched.

Eight panels done.  First four stitched together.

Second row of four stitched together.

First eight blocks stitched together.

This is the top left-quarter of the main design.


That's my WOW work-in-progress for this Wednesday.  I'm sharing with Esther's Quilt Blog for her WOW blog link party.

Happy Stitching!
