The Onion Ring

It's been a busy couple of days! I finally got to squeeze a blog post in!
I have a hankie that I plan to put an edging on this summer and I think this might just be the pattern! It's called 'Clover Edging' from Be-Stitched.com. This pattern features rings-within-rings called an Onion by Georgia Seitz. HERE is a link to her instructions. Her technique uses just one shuttle to make an onion/clover versus using a shuttle and ball thread. I was so excited how the purple one was coming out that I forgot to join it to the green leaf! :-) The color threads are all Lizbeth threads; gold is #611 , pink is #145 'Pink Parade', purple is #162 'purple Iris Fusion', and the green is #683 'Leaf Green Light' :)


Here's another Onion/Clover color combo!

This was a fun project and a pretty little new technique to learn! I like the way the variegated threads make the blossoms look. I just got my order in from Be-Stitched.com with a bunch of new variegated threads! Pictures to come! Have a lovely evening!

Well done! I downloaded the pattern, but didn't actually use it. I do like the way you used different shades of colour, very effective.
