  • I made a resolution to do a lot more hand sewing this year. I am excited to be a part of this “Quilty Stitches”. I love counted cross stitch. Looking forward to getting started.

  • HI stitched the first block Corey- I love the colors (so does our daughter, so I think I will make it into a pillow for her to take to college with her in the fall) Many thanks!

  • Newbie question – looking at a variety of videos, none of them really explain how to move from row to row in the same color. I’m fine making the stitch going across, either one by one or doing the half-stitch across then coming back and finishing the stitch. But when I try to move to the next row, it seems like the next stitch wants to go into the same hole I just used. I hope this makes sense and that someone has a tip for me.
    Thank you in advance!!

    • Did you get an answer yet? I see that your comment is several months old. Basically, you can do the first stitch of the second row backwards — from bottom to top instead of top to bottom. It should still slant the same way as the lower stitches of the other block, you’re just coming up where you usually go down. Hope that helps!

  • […] The February block will be released in just a few hours! In the meantime, I had some time to kill so I moved on to another project. Little Miss Shabby is a quilting blog but is running a cross stitch “sampler along” called Quilty Stitches. The pattern is based on quilt blocks, with a new block released every two weeks and sixteen total blocks. I’m using a different color scheme, with deeper blues, greens, and reds. I’m using 28-count evenweave, I think in mushroom. I really like my color palette against the mushroom background, so I’m not going to fill in the white portion of the blocks. Instead I’m going to find a darker brown that compliments the mushroom and use that to fill in the border between blocks. Here’s an index of all the relevant Quilty Stitches pages. […]

  • Hi There! I found your Quilty Stitches project through Jenny’s (Elefantz) blog, which I have followed for years. How I wish I had found you sooner, but, as we know, “good things come to those who wait” *wink*. I have issues with my hands and haven’t cross stitched in years, but I am definitely going to give this sweet project my best effort. I won’t be able to catch up, but that’s okay, I’ll just go at my own slow pace and thank our sweet Lord that I can do that. Thank you so very much for sharing this wonderful project with us. I can’t wait to get started. Big Hugs and God Bless……..Nancy

  • Corey,
    Thank you so much for the Quilty Stitches over these last 8 months. I have completed the project and am absolutely thrilled. It has been years since I’ve worked on CCS and even longer since I’ve actually completed a project. Wish I could figure out a way to send you my interpretation, I’m thrilled with the end results. Thank you for sharing your talent with us.

  • Hi, if its not too much trouble it would be beneficial to me (and hopefully lots of other people) to link to a pdf of all of the blocks togeter. I have a lot of catching up to do!! Thanks you so much for the patterns.

  • Teresa,

    The patterns are still up under the tab Quilty Stitches, so yes, you’d still be able to do them. Have fun, I sure did 🙂
