The student will experiment with shading canvas stitches. This design is worked on #18 white canvas with floss and pearl cotton. The piece will explore 27 canvas stitches with shading. It will then be enhanced with four Jean Hilton stitches and beads. The students will select their favorite floss color in four values for a monochromatic color scheme. The design was inspired by the feather designs in quilting.
