TAST Stitch 25: Twisted Chain Stitch or Rope Stitch
This is a fun stitch to create vines with! I used size 8 pearl cotton and love the texture.
It is my understanding that you work the twisted chain stitch tightly to create the rope stitch. That was my goal here.
I would love to share a more exciting picture, but this is just a sneak peek as this particular project will be a secret for a couple of months. I am sure the rope stitch will be popping up again soon on other crazy quilt blocks, though!
TAST Stitch 26: Arrow or Arrowhead Stitch
I used the arrow stitch to tack down a ribbon with size 12 pearl cotton. Stitching through the little eyelets on this ribbon made spacing my stitches easy work.
Then, I opted go back through once more, creating a laced up look. It is an easy stitch that I look forward to playing around with more in the future.
