TAST 29: Barb Stitch
This was a fun stitch for me. One of my crazy quilting go-to stitches is the buttonhole stitch. The barb stitch expands on the buttonhole stitch.
To keep my stitches even, I used an edge of one of Sharon B.'s Crazy Quilting Templates Set 2 and traced the "barbs" on the pink fabric. The stitches on the black were done without the template, just following the spacing from the pink side.
I worked the buttonhole stitches along both sides with size 8 Anchor #052 pink pearl cotton. I whipped the center section together with size 8 Anchor black pearl cotton.
To dress the seam up a bit, I added French knots and straight stitches to both sides using more of the size 8 Anchor black pearl cotton on the pink fabric and size 8 DMC #605 pink pearl cotton on the black fabric.
TAST stands for Take a Stitch Tuesday. It is a personal stitching challenge offered by Sharon B. on Facebook and on her blog, pintangle.com. You may read more about it here. If you follow the TAST Facebook group, you know there are some incredibly inspiring examples of these stitches being shared. Anyone may join at any time during the challenge. Thank you, Sharon, for offering TAST!
Thank you for stopping by!
