TAST 2016 Stitch 37

TAST 37: Triangular Buttonhole Stitch


This was a fun stitch! I used a single strand of blue DMC cotton floss for this stitch because I wanted to subtly embellish this seam. (You may need to click on the photo to see it better.)

In 2014, I used this stitch for the first time to create the seam above on a crazy quilt "snowball" I swapped with Kathy in MD. 

Thank you for stopping by!

This is a lovely stitch, although it took me some time to get the hang of it. Your examples are great.

It looks great in both iterations. I saw this stitch somewhere a couple of days ago, and thought that I wanted to include it on something soon.

This stitch looks like waves, at least when stitched with blue.

Oh that's pretty. Either looks like waves or little shark fins.
