CP4: Crazy Patch, Fern detail

I think this is my favourite piece on the quilt.

This is lovely. Did you do it by hand or by machine?

hand work.
two strands of d.m.c. start using two of one colour, then one of (a) and one of (b), then two of (b) etc... it's effective and lovely to do. in my classes, girls have done it in shades of pink, or introduced a gold colour at the tips etc. purples...
the spine is ceylon stitch (like vandyke) but roumanian couching works well too. the 'leaves' are satin stitch but buttonhole works very well.
