The Bell Choir

Ever since I experienced the almost ethereal experience of listening to a bell choir, I have tried to translate the aural beauty into a visual treat. Here is the result of my love of the sounds of a bell choir.

Each of the bells comes in two sizes - all of the bells in one set fit in a 4" x 4" hoop, the bells in the next set are one almost 5" tall.  In addition, in each size the bells come in two versions - one with placement circles for hot-fix crystals (size 10ss) and one with no circles for crystals. 

Purchase the set as shown here - for sewing directly on your fabric or the set shown below (and to the right) for applique. The set for direct stitching is daintier, the applique version is more robust in appearance.

Embroidered Mantel Scarf

As Seen In Through the Needle Winter 2009

We have the directions for the Quilt As You Go technique as used in the mantel scarf above. Download the PDF or on the picture above.

 

 

Note- the stipple stitch around each bell is not included in the design set - it's part of the quilting.

These delicate bells are the perfect addition to any project.

1) 4.8" tall -with placement lines for crystals

2) 4.8" tall - no crystal placement lines

3) 3.8" tall - applique with placement lines for crystal

4) 3.8" tall - applique no crystal placement lines

5) 4.8" tall -with placement lines for crystals and stipple stitch for quilt as you go

6) 4.8" tall - no crystal placement lines and stipple stitch for quilt as you go

7) 3.8" tall - applique with placement lines for crystal and stipple stitch for quilt as you go

8) 3.8" tall - applique no crystal placement lines and stipple stitch for quilt as you go

 

 

I see both the applique and the standard stitching bell sets as being very useful, whether it's for the holiday season or for weddings, or any occasion when bells can ring out your joy.

The Applique Version of the Designs

To facilitate a good applique, the designs were redigitized with placement lines for the applique fabric, stitching lines to attach the applique fabrics and wider satin stitch outlines to cover the edges of the fabric.

Each applique design comes in 4 versions (each separately digitized)

1) 4.8" tall -with placement lines for crystals

2) 4.8" tall - no crystal placement lines

3) 3.8" tall - with placement lines for crystal

4) 3.8" tall - no crystal placement lines
