E ditor's letter

Welcome to this adventurous issue!

In my travels I’ve taken, in

moments of awe, many photos of

famous buildings, structures and

bridges, trying to preserve the

memory forever.

To state the obvious, architecture

offers an abundance of inspiration

for needlework projects. The

dilemma is where to begin

in reproducing a favourite

architectural subject? Photos,

whether yours or not, are the key.

In our thrilling world of the needle

arts, fibre artists have played with

fabric, yarn and threads to mimic

textures of buildings, brick and tile

patterns, and the shape of things

we live in and call home.

I’m so excited to showcase the

awesome efforts our needlework

experts have put together for you.

You’ll find tutorials including sewing

techniques and products that make

the artwork possible. The whole

experience of learning these will

stretch your needlework abilities.

The concept of structure has

played a key role in knitting

and crochet projects that give a

garment a professional look. See

what Cynthia MacDougall has to

say about the construction of

knitted garments.

ARCHITECTURE

Do enjoy the issue, there's a lot

to explore, learn and make.

Once again, I invite you to

share your finished projects,

the ones you've conquered

as well as the ones born from

isolation, and post these with

#TheSewGoesOn.

As always, stay safe and stay calm.

Cheerfully,

Make & Stay Calm

I hope this letter finds you in good health.

I grew up on a hobby farm, with horses and cows,

chickens and rabbits. My childhood memories are filled

with time spent in the barn on our property - feeding

and grooming the animals, polishing the horse tack,

and cleaning the stables. Now, as an adult and far from

the family farm, the scent of hay immediately takes

me back to the old barn and those fond memories! A

barn door is the inspiration for this small lap quilt - the

‘crisscross’ of the door’s frame is an interesting detail

that makes great lines on a modern quilt!

Life is a Beach Table Runner

In my travels of the world small houses have always

spoken to me. Whether they are in Newfoundland,

England or Oceanside California, these rows of small

houses give each area a very distinctive look. I spent

many holidays walking down the beach at Oceanside.

I always think about how fun it would be to sit on

the front porch of one of these houses with a glass

of wine, facing west watching the sun drop into the

Pacific Ocean.

In this pattern, I made the doors quite prominent

as in many areas of the world the doors make a

statement. Embellish your doors so they make a

statement about you! The windows are a turned

appliqué technique allowing you to make any shape of

window. This appliqué technique also makes the end

project very washable, which is great for kids’ quilts,

table runners and placements. Use this paper pieced

house pattern, fabrics from your stash (or maybe

it’s time for a shopping trip!) and create houses that

reflect the feeling of your favourite place in the world.

Remember, life is a beach!

Old Meeting New

Architecture

Royal Ontario Museum

Wall-hanging

The theme for this issue, the shape of things, made me think about unusual shaped buildings. In

researching this I discovered that the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) has a very unique design

combining its original heritage stone façade with the Lee-Chin Crystal section. The older section was

created in a neo-Byzantine style with rusticated stone, triple windows within recessed arches and

different coloured stones arranged in a variety of patterns. The new Deconstructivist* crystalline form

is 25% glass and 75% aluminum, sitting on top of a steel frame; it is composed of five interlocking, selfsupporting

prismatic structures. These buildings co-exist but are not attached except for the bridges

that link them. One interesting fact I discovered in my research is that the ROM has been ranked as one

of the ten ugliest buildings in the world, so I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder!

I found

this design

fascinating

and decided to

do something

similar when

creating this

wall hanging

by combining

various quilting

techniques old

and new.

These

instructions are

not intended

for you to

recreate this

exact project

but give you the

steps I used to

create it. You

can apply these

techniques to

create your own

unique wall

hanging from a

photograph.

Maritime

Houses Quilt

The Maritime Houses quilt was initially inspired

by the weathered and colorful houses found in the

Maritime Provinces of Canada. When Northcott

introduced their Crackle line of fabrics, it was the

perfect choice for this project.

As I began working on the house blocks, the world

was faced with a Global Pandemic and families

were forced to isolate in their homes, bringing new

meaning to this project. Our homes are where we

traditionally find safety and security, which was never

truer than it is now. Worldwide Quilting Day took

place at the outset of Social Isolation in Canada and

quilters across the country took to displaying their

favourite quilts outside their homes to show the world

the ways that quilting binds us together. Quilts are

the heart of our homes, so they had to be a part of

this project inspiring the sashing. – Clodagh

WAVES

quilt

Two years ago, I had the opportunity to

travel to Poland with my friend Debbie. At

one point during the tour I went missing

for a couple of minutes, a person on the

tour noticed my absence. When Debbie

was questioned about my absence,

her reply was, “Paul probably found a

quilt inspiration and is probably taking

pictures”. Debbie was correct! I was taking

photos of a design in a brick. On many

trips I more than likely took more pictures

of quilt inspirations than the sites of the

places I’m visiting.

When I travel to foreign lands, I do so

to taste and savour the colours of these

new exotic locations. Now I travel with an

additional interest, quilting. It’s amazing

the inspiration I come across when

quilt design is a big part of my life. I find

inspiration in so many things, ceramic

tiles, plant colours, lines, graffiti and my

favourite architectural designs. I’m always

taking photos.

On a recent extended vacation to Puerto

Vallarta, I was amazed at the inspiration I

was finding everywhere. One such view,

which got to me was an outer hotel wall

located next to the building where I was

staying. Everyday I would see this wall

and enjoy looking at the curved lines

the stonework created. As my vacation

was coming to a rapid end, I was sitting

at the pool staring at the wall I had been

admiring for weeks. Suddenly, I noticed

the wall’s stonework had the same

colours and shades as the many fabrics in

Northcott Stonehenge collections. Within

3 days, I had a plan and had ordered

every piece of fabric I would need to

reproduce this wall, minus the windows.

I had the inspiration, the idea and a plan.

The next step was to put it all together.

Another Brick In The Wall

Quilt

I’ve always love bright colours. I remember in

high school wearing a bright coloured shirt my

mother had made me. As a 17-year-old teenager,

like everyone else I wanted to fit in, be cool.

Well let me tell you, in 1977 wearing the bright

coloured shirts did not make you fit in or be cool,

but for what ever reason I did not care. I loved

the colours and I wore the shirt with pride.

My love of bright colours remains to this

day, it’s obvious in many of my quilts. The

inspiration for this quilt came from loving the

geometric shape of a brick wall and the love of

solid coloured fabrics. Having purchased several

pounds of solid remnants in every colour of the

rainbow a quilt plan formed itself. – Paul

In the Studio with

Ana Buzzalino

Architectural structure and quilting

The Bridge to the Other Side I

Some months ago, I woke up around 2 a.m., which is not

unusual for me, and had a thought. At the time, I had

just finished a week of intense studies about working in

monochrome. The colour I had chosen to work with was red.

It came to me that night that there’s a beautiful architectural

structure in Calgary, Alberta called The Peace Bridge. The bridge

is a dark red colour, I could use its lines to design and make

abstract art quilts. Join me as I show you how to use your own

photos of an architectural structure or building that is close to

your heart to design your own abstract pieces.

Let’s talk about architecture today: it’s defined as the art or

practice of designing and constructing buildings. The complex or

carefully designed structure of something.

According to Wikipedia, the earliest surviving written work on

architecture is De architectura by the Roman architect Vitruvius

in the early 1st century AD. According to Vitruvius, a good

building should satisfy the three principles of:

• Firmitas – firmness

• Utilitas – commodity

• Venustas – delight

The equivalent in modern English would be:

• Durability – a building should stand up robustly and remain

in good condition

• Utility – it should be suitable for the purposes for which it

is used

• Beauty – it should be aesthetically pleasing

How Sweet It Is

Baby Cardigan and Hat Set

Top Down Raglan Baby Cardi - Knitted Version

If you’ve already read this issue’s Knit Together

column, you’ll see that this little project gives an

opportunity to talk about a garment structure I

absolutely love: raglan shaping!

For a time, it was the fashion to knit sweaters with a

drop shoulder design. It was not my favourite time

in fashion history. Sure, straight body pieces are easy

to knit and make it easy to design or adapt patterns

such as cables or intarsia to flow with minimal

interruption, but (and, to me, it’s a big but), the

absence of shoulder shaping means that the ‘blunt’

sleeves bunch up under the arm, which is especially

uncomfortable when an overcoat is also required.

Raglan sleeves, by contrast, fit nicely up to the under

arm, then taper gently up to the collar. I like this

style so much that sometime in the early 1980s I

invested in Bea Freeman’s patented Raglan Sweater

Wheel. This little device makes it possible for me

to knit any raglan sweater I want in any size from 6

months to men’s or women’s 48" [122cm].

When I was asked to create a simple baby cardigan,

my thoughts went directly to Bea’s wheel! There

were a couple of hitches, though: the wheel is made

for bottom-up knitting, and I want a top-down one,

and all of the instructions are in inches and use a

different needle numbering system! Nothing that a

good needle gauge and a bit of math can’t fix!

Another structural feature I want to talk about

is the trim on this cardigan. I chose garter stitch,

because it works well with cotton and the button and

buttonhole bands can be worked in with a stocking

stitch body most times with success. Keep an eye

on them as your sweater progresses. If you find the

button bands are pulling up too much, you can add

a couple of short rows on each side to add a little

more ease. I did this with the acrylic version. Just

remember to keep the buttonhole spacing on track.

For yarn, I was given carte-blanche, so I chose

some soft cotton out of my stash that will be very

comfortable on a baby! When I wanted a second testknit,

I chose a soft baby acrylic. – Cynthia

A NEEDLE PULLING THREAD ● issue 53

T

IS FOR

TurnSocks

Sock 1 TOE FOOT GUSSET TURN

HEEL LEG CUFF

Sock 2 CUFF LEG HEEL TURN

GUSSET FOOT TOE

The architecture of a hand knit

sock offers endless opportunities

in design. However, the steps in

construction are quite fixed and

they depend on the ingenious heel

turn.

I used different colours of wool to

draw attention to each component

of the sock. I listed the words

on the soles in different orders

because regardless of how you knit

socks each step must be made.

I encourage you to try something

you have never done before. Start

with just one part of the sock and

become a sock architect.

Notre

Dame

Crescent

Shawl

Watching Paris’s Notre Dame

Cathedral burn in April 2019

was heartbreaking, but the

generosity of people from

around the world, and the

resolve of the French citizens

and their government give

hope for its resurrection. The

yarn chosen for this project

has the colours of stained glass,

and the overall shape of the

shawl is suggestive of a section

of the cathedral’s famous

rose window. The horseshow

lace motifs are reminiscent of

gothic arches, and the columns

between the arches evoke

the flying buttresses that are

quintessential traits of gothic

architecture. – Nancy

ChâteauLaurier

Cardigan

Laurier Cardigan is knit in two

sections. The first part, knit flat,

makes up the back and sleeves. When

it’s finished, the two sleeve seams

are sewn up leaving a large hole at

the center. The second part is knit by

picking up stitches around the center

opening. It creates the collar and body

of the cardigan using a combination of

short rows (knit flat), and knitting in

the round to build its shape. A little bit

of striping, a button hole, and an icord

bind off finish the sweater.

– Fiona

Whoo Baby!

Cardigan and Hat Set

The little one

in your life

is worthy

of wearing

Merino wool!

To maintain

the softness of

Dona yarn in

crochet, you need

a modern stitch

that is elastic and

light. Working

with a slightly

larger hook to get

the gauge listed

for this pattern

is essential, and

the extended

single crochet

stitch is one of

the ‘stretchy-est’

crochet stitches

that is still solid

in appearance

but doesn't feel

like those stiff

baby sets from

the ‘70s. The

young wearer of

this hat and cardi

will turn even

more heads, and

everyone will

ask, "Whoo's that

cutie?"

– Charles

The

Castle

Nursery

This piece was a happy combination

of the theme for this issue and an

art project our youngest did while

in University! Katie created this

large castle wall full of windows,

and when you opened each window,

you could see the room inside. I

kept the project pieces long after

she graduated, as I always thought

it would make a wonderful crossstitch

series – and when Carla

provided the theme, that longdelayed

project was the first thing

that came to mind.

It also became my COVID-19

project, as much of the stitching

was completed in isolation. My

thanks to Belinda Howell, who

jumped in and helped by stitching

the back layer! Due to the 3D

nature of this piece, there were

some corrections to the graph to

make it easier to assemble, like

shifting the windows slightly into

the center and up a few stitches

so the side/bottom measurements

were easier to figure out.

It is strongly recommend reading

all the instructions before you

begin stitching, as there are both

stitching and assembly options

provided such as the colour wire or

beads to use for hinging.

Since we were in isolation, and so

many businesses were closed, we

also had to ‘wing’ the framing!

Fortunately, I had a mat I liked

on hand; it has a slightly smaller

opening than I would have

preferred if I’d been able to get a

mat cut, so more of your castle wall

may show than mine! I’m also lucky

enough to have a handy husband,

Bill was able to make a frame deep

enough to accommodate all the

layers of foamcore, fabric and a

mat! Just keep in mind that you’ll

need a deeper-than-usual frame

to fit this design. Enjoy… happy

stitching… and stay safe! – Jo

80 A NEEDLE PULLING THREAD issue 53


Moroccan Mug Rug

The inspiration for the design of

this little project was a window

grate in a photo of an old door in

Morocco.

When I saw the photo so many

ideas for ways to create with the

design began popping into my

head. Now, the window grate

was distorted by the angle of the

picture, so the first job was to

try to align it. Then I re-created

one quarter of the design, this

too could be broken down into

quarters. These quarters, like the

original, could be mirror imaged

vertically and horizontally or run

in a column to create a multitude

of new designs. The possibilities

seem nearly endless!

Work a block or ¼ block or ¼ of a

quarter with mirrors to design a

block of your own. Turn the inside

to become the outside or flip flop

vertically or horizontally. You may

be surprised at what you create.

Make it your own!!

Eyes Open to the World by Karen D. Miller

For more examples of how to use travel to inspire your art,

check out Karen's book Eyes Open to the World: Memories

of Travel in Wool (Ampry Publishing). Karen shows that travel

is really a state of mind - a curiosity about the world ‘out

there’ beyond the comfortable familiarity of ‘home’ – that

bridges easily to inspiration for her art. Intended as a musthave

resource of shared experiences for new and established

fibre artists alike, Eyes Open to the World will take you on a

160 page journey through the artistic process, from turning

inspiration into an idea, to techniques in observation and

composition, and all the way to working en plein air. It brings

you to Karen’s favourite places across the North Atlantic and

explores a range of artistic approaches, from conventional to

abstract. Every step is liberally sprinkled with insights and art

from Karen and over thirty contributors, all inspired by their

own travels all around the world. Above all, Eyes Open to the

World is Karen’s exhortation to set free the artist within you

and tell your own stories. As she learned, and now shares with

you, there is nothing to be afraid of, and nothing to wait for.

Available through Amazon.com and Searchpress.com.
