A variation of the Buttonhole stitch, Crossed Buttonhole Stitch was the one for week 18 of Take A Stitch Tuesday. http://pintangle.com/tast-faq/
Once again I struggled with getting the stitches even and of the same length.
Crossed Buttonhole Stitch
I decided to use flower fabric on my May Crazy Quilt Journal Project block.
I used all Crossed Buttonhole stitch on this first quarter of the block. Free form tatted flowers were also added. I like the way it looks.
