Finished Quaker Star!

Well here it is, my Quaker Star:

I finished it on Saturday, April 2nd. I really loved how this turned out! I stitched it on 32 count White Lugana using variegated premium single strand Mermaid Blue (2317/2321/2323) from HDF. The blue is gorgeous and the photo does not capture the true beauty of this color. I think of all the HDF blues, this is my favorite! This was also my first time stitching with a premium single strand and I loved it! The coverage is great and I liked using one strand to get the appearance of 2 strands.

This was my first SAL through the Sticklounge group. I am also participating in the Purple Garden SAL and will participate in the upcoming Heart Note Alley which will begin later this month. So stay tuned!
