BAS - Week 71 - Another Laced Stitch

This week`s Build a Seam (BAS) Challenge stitch is this laced stitch.  I used this on my little quilt from the last post and I am loving working with these bright colours.  It is pretty simple, consisting of three or more rows of running stitch and then threading another thread up and down through the running stitches. I used four rows of running stitch because I had four colours of silk thread I wanted to use.  I also used silk for the thread I wove up and down but I did it twice because I didn`t get enough of the colours from the variegation showing on only one run through.  This is a quick, fun seam treatment - enjoy!
