I enjoyed this week's TAST, the feather stitch. For more details on the TAST (Take a Stitch Tuesday) Challenge, please visit the information page on Sharon B's Pintangle blog.
Above are the three variations of Feather Stitch which were the BAS (Build a Seam) Challenge stitch for this week here on my blog - a happy coincidence for me since I only had to stitch once for both challenges! A full list of the BAS stitches can be found by scrolling down the sidebar to the right. The details of these particular stitches are in my last post.
After completing the feather stitches, I have decided that this block Juli made for me at Christmas is embellished enough. It is not the usual encrusting but I like the way the stitching is stealing the show and don't think it needs a bunch of lace and charms etc to carry it. I'll be finishing it up now as my AAQI quilt donation for January. Ta-dah! Does that make three birds with one stone??
One last thing - I have been visiting many of the samples of Feather Stitch in the comments on Sharon's blog and I have an absolute fabourite. If you haven't seen it, check out Gayle Schipper's Tessalating Fish Lips!
