Another Time Saving Tip for Challah Cover Needlepoint Projects

In May this year I blogged about how to quickly stitch a challah cover by just stitching the center. Here is another idea, where I stitch a swath across the middle from end to end, and add material to the top and the bottom to fill it out. This reduced stitching time by about two thirds, and the results are very impressive.

I have a customer doing this project in copper and navy, and another one (on bed rest due to a complicated pregnancy) doing it in burgundy and gold. I’ll post those pictures when I have them.
