TAST Week Sixty-Three: Triangular Feather Stitch

This week's stitch for the TAST Challenge hosted by Sharon Boggon at Pin Tangle  is a variation of one of my favourite stitches, the feather stitch.  The Triangular Feather Stitch is quick and easy to stitch with very pretty results.  As usual, you can find Sharon's excellent tutorial for it here.

I needed to start filling in the outer edges of my sampler so, I drew a partial circle coming in from the edge to decorate with this pretty stitch.

I used my preferred variegated silk thread to stitch it.  This particular skein of thread has some really lovely, vibrant colours and I loved the resulting line of stitching.


  1. Lovely! Is this your own design! Looks like you're 'gearing up'! I love it!

  2. Ja der Stich ist immer wieder schön! Und diese Variante gefällt mir gut!

    Gruß Marion

  3. Wow Christine,
    schon die 63... das ist wider ein sehr schöner Stickstich! Dieses Mustertuch wird etwas ganz besonderes!
    Liebe Grüße

  4. I thought I knew the feather stitch, but you always amaze me with a new twist.

  5. Another nice stitch that translated perfectly into your circular format.

  6. Another very cool stitch! It always amazes me how you manage to get your stitches so even on the curves--lovely!

  7. Beautiful! I didn't know the feather stitch until it appeared in The Splendid Sampler... a sign that I should be really doing an embroidery sampler! Perhaps next year ;-) That particular variation seems pretty useful to work borders. Have a nice week(end)! Ariadna.

  8. I have never seen this stitch before , very pretty 😊

  9. Gorgeous! I love variegated threads, stitching with them is so interesting each time the colours change! Happy weekend Christine.

    All your stitching is very neat! Love your feather stitch, and the variegated thread you've used for them is very striking!
    Have a great week!

  11. Feather stitch is also one of my favourites, just love the thread you use, makes the stitched circles in the sampler so pretty.
