I thoroughly enjoyed learning this week's stitch for the TAST Challenge hosted by Sharon Boggon at Pin Tangle. It is called 'Portuguese Border Stitch' and it is worked over a base of straight stitches which gives it a lovely raised look. You can find Sharon's tutorial for it here.
I added another circle to my sampler using my favourite variegated silk thread and I am very pleased with the results. This is not a difficult stitch to work but you do have to be very careful to keep your tension even and not pull the base stitches out of alignment.
I definitely think this stitch will be included in a future crazy quilt block!
