This week the Take A Stitch Tuesday (TAST) lesson at Pintangle.com taught the Threaded Cable Chain Stitch. I found the trickiest part of this stitch to be choosing the right project to add it to. I did not want to put it on any project that would be washed or might allow the threaded stitches to be pulled out of shape in the future.
I opted to add this seam to the last block I need to embellish from the first Crazy Quilting International Under the Sea Do Your Own Block Round Robin I participated in during 2015. (The post sharing those blocks when they returned home is here.)
The cable chain stitch above was created using a strand of DMC #4215 size 5 pearl cotton.
DMC #4250 size 5 pearl cotton floss was threaded through the cable chain stitch. (I liked the way it looked after the first step of lacing and thought about leaving it as it was in the picture above.)
I love the texture this stitch created on the block!
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!
