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.
