Week 22 Take A Stitch Tuesday http://pintangle.com/tast-faq/ was similar to one we had before but with a knot added. It was called Knotted Cretan Stitch. Since this was a 5th week in the month I added it to my 4th week.
I have been doing my Crazy Quilt Journal Project block in four quarters so since I had a fifth weeks stitch I added it to the center of my May Block.
My May Crazy Quilt Journal Project is finished! http://www.cqjp2012.blogspot.com/ I like the spring feel of my flower block with its tatted flowers and butterfly.
Butterfly Chain was week 21’s Take A Stitch Tuesday’s stitch.
I liked this stitch which is done in two steps. A foundation row of three vertical straight stitches is followed by a twisted Chain stitch which ties them together.
The forth quarter on my Crazy Quilt Journal Project used the Butterfly Chain Stitch. http://www.cqjp2012.blogspot.com/
I also added a small tatted flower with a bead center.
This week the stitch for Take A Stitch Tuesday http://pintangle.com/ 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.
The stitch for this week was the half Chevron stitch which is a variety of Herringbone stitch. This is already week 19 of Take A Stitch Tuesday.
On the second quarter of the block I used the Half Chevron stitch done in a variety of colors and added a small tatted flower near the center top of the block.
