CQJP March and TAST week 12

 

The Take A Stitch Tuesday stitch for week 11 was the Barred Chain Stitch and Alternating Barred Chain Stitch.  I struggled with this stitch but looking at others examples it looks worth another try.

On the forth quarter of my Block for the Crazy Quilt Journal Project I used the Barred Chain Stitch and the Alternating Barred Chain Stitch.  The running stitch and the couching stitch were also used.    I added another piece of lace and finished the center of the Block with a shamrock applique buttonholed stitched and topped by a tatted shamrock.
