playing with needles, fibers, and fabrics

This week’s stitch in Sharon B’s Take a Stitch Tuesday Challenge is Cretan Stitch. Here’s how I applied it to one of my crazy quilt blocks:

You can see that on two seams I augmented it with detached chain stitches and straight stitches. On the center seam I tried variations of closed Cretan stitch. On the purple seam I stacked them, going over the seam three times with variegated thread. On the last seam, I used open Cretan stitch, and then laced it twice with other shades of blue.

  1. Looks beautiful.I shall also try the stitches and will send you the sample.

  2. Oooh, great job with it all, and it’s so cheery! I really like the red/purple lazy daisy on the lower right embellishing that cretan stitch line.
