CQJP and TAST week 51 December 2012


The third week of December the stitch for Take A Stitch Tuesday was Knotted Chain Stitch.  I also used some Buttonhole stitch as well as some rick rack attached with gold thread using the  Couching  stitch.  This is the final TAST stitch for the year.





The third quarter of my December Block Crazy Quilt Journal Project was done with the knotted Chain Stitch as well as

Buttonhole Stitch.





The finished Crazy Quilt Journal Project  December Block includes  the previous December stitches as well as this weeks  Knotted Chain Stitch, Rick rack attached with  Couching Stitch and  a tatted Candy Cane done with Lizbeth size 20 thread.


This completes all 12 Crazy Quilt Blocks for the year.  I have enjoyed working on the TAST and CQJP  and adding tatting to the Blocks also.    Now I just have to decide how to put the Blocks together!

CQJP and TAST week 50 December 2012


The second week of December the stitch for Take A Stitch Tuesday was called by three names, Berry Stitch, Double lazy daisy stitch or Double detached chain stitch.





For the second week of my December Crazy Quilt Journal Project I used the Double detached chain stitch as well as Chain stitch, French Knot, and Buttonhole stitch.




CQPJ and TAST week 49 December 1012

The first week in December  for Take A Stitch Tuesday  used the Buttonhole Eyelet flower stitch.   This stitch is a combination of Button hole wheel and Bullion stitch which we had earlier in the year.




For the first week of my December block for Crazy Quilt Journal Project I used the Buttonhole Eyelet flower stitch as well as  plain Buttonhole stitch,  Chain stitch, and French Knot stitch.

CQJP and TAST week 23


Week 23 was a catch up week for Take A Stitch Tuesday

so those who had gotten behind  would have a chance to get caught up.  h

Since no stitches were given I decided to use 2 I liked from earlier weeks.

I used Buttonhole stitch from week 1 and Herringbone stitch from week 5.





For the first quarter of my June Crazy quilt Journal Project

I used 2 stitches from previous weeks.   Buttonhole and Herringbone stitches from weeks 1 and 5.  My fabrics for June are purples.  I added a small purple tatted flower.



CQJP and TAST week 18


A variation of the Buttonhole stitch, Crossed Buttonhole Stitch was the one for week 18  of Take A Stitch Tuesday.

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.




CQJP January and TAST Week 3

The stitch for week 3 was the Feather stitch.  Not my favorite stitch, but I like the way putting them together made hearts.

It is in the Buttonhole family.

I used the Feather Stitch on the 3rd quarter of my January Crazy Quilt Journal Project.  I also added a simple tatted Snow woman.
