This project gives the student a choice of any color (not white please) of #18 mono canvas. The class also opens that Pandora’s box, the “stitcher’s stash” of thread alternatives. Straight (vertical and horizontal), diagonal, straight trellis and diagonal trellis possibilities will be covered. Pulling the colored canvas and a variety of threads together will help the students visualize the possibilities and opportunities. These laid fillings and the optical color blending developed with these simple to compound and complex techniques will open new possibilities for stitch choices. The best part of this class is the interaction and sharing with others as their individual choices come together and develop. By the way the student can end up with a frame, a mat or a pillow at their option. This is a lot of fun and can be addictive!

The students will learn the versatility and adaptability of laid filling techniques and the possibilities for optical color blending. An understanding will be achieved of the stitching techniques and possibilities offered by optical color blending. Even if two people were to start with the same color canvas and the same thread selections the end results, when worked independently, will be very different.
