#YearOfStitch Bonus Week! : Queen Stitch
I just can’t stop myself. One of our #YearOfStitch friends asked me to please add Queen Stitch to the mix because she was having trouble with it. I can’t say no. This is a tricky stitch. I tried stitching it a few different ways and this stitch is really temperamental. I thought if I started with the backstitches and then wove the vertical stitches through it would simplify the stitch - it did but it also distorted the stitch. This is just one of those stitches that has to be done in a specific way. I’ll talk you through it.
The photos will help…
Key: Don’t pull this thread taught yet!
The first horizontal stitch is meant to tack down the vertical stitch
Now you can pull it taught.
So you can use this as a border but I like it as a filler. Here’s how they all tetris together.
Enjoy your bonus!
