Here are Step-by-Step photos of the monogram I created for my
Straight From The Heart
I penciled a circle on my fabric then started the stitching with a whipped running stitch to outline the letters (my initials).
Next I filled the middle of the letters with herringbone stitch.
The herringbone stitch was then laced.
And then I added French Knots in the spaces with lavender thread.

Next I made a Stem Stitch circle in a pastel pink around the monogram
And then added another circle of Stem Stitch

Then I filled in the middle with Back Stitch in a dusky rose
And the finished Monogram.........
I know it it usually required to "sign" quilts when completed.
As usual, I am doing things back to front.
This Monogram of my initials is for the front of the crazy quilt.
With a bit of luck (and time), next week I can show you the setting for the Monogram.
