Category Archives: Bullion knot stitch

CQJP and TAST week 20

This week the stitch for Take A Stitch Tuesday was the Bullion knot stitch.  This is also known as bullion stitch, caterpillar stitch, coil stitch, grub knot, knot stitch, post stitch, Porto Rico rose and worm stitch.  I liked this stitch although sometimes I had a hard time keeping the thread wrapped around the needle as I did the final needle entry.               




This third quarter of the Crazy Quilt Journal Project block used the Bullion knot stitch to join the various fabric pieces together.

I also tatted a yellow butterfly to use on it.
