This stitch is a very pretty edging stitch but it is a stitch which needs you to pay a lot of attention to your thread tension as you are working it. I added a line to my sampler and I worked it in blue perle cotton (8) thread. I added 3mm seed beads in a blue colour also.
The stitch is worked over a series of long and short cross stitches which are then woven using an up and down buttonhole stitch technique. It took me a little while to establish the correct rhythm to successfully work the stitch but, I think the results were worth it! You can find Sharon's tutorial for it here.
For those of you who read my blog regularly, you will know that I have really been working hard to improve my free motion quilting and, I always take every opportunity to practise. One of the blogs I follow which has lots of FMQ information and tutorials is 'The Inbox Jaunt' by Lori Kennedy. From time to time she hosts a quilt-a-long which is always fun to join in with. I thought you might like to know that a new one is about to start. I will certainly be joining in with the fun. Here is the link to the first quilt-a-long post. Hope you join in and have some fun too!
