TAST #138 Barb Stitch

After having had some trouble with two recent stitches, I was very pleased to learn this new one, TAST #138 Barb Stitch. It was easy peasy and I am very happy with the result.


I have just realised that our teacher, Sharon, has worked her whipping stitches from right to left so the centre stitches are slanting in the other direction. Actually I don't think it is so important, and I won't undo my left-to-right-whipped stitches... You, however, who probably will read the instructions more carefully, can learn the correct way from Pintangle. Have fun!

  1. wow! Good detail awareness! I don't think I would have noticed (consciously, at least) the slant of those wrap stitches. Probably just be vaguely unsettled and aware that something wasn't 'right'.

    1. Maybe I shouldn't have mentioned it! Ha, ha! The point is I need to remind myself to read the instructions with care; next mistake might be a much more complex one and I go on wondering what is wrong.

  2. I wouldn't think it matters which way the centre stitches are whipped. I like blue with brown.

    1. Of course it doesn't matter, and I think you could make another row of whipping stitches on top to create a cross design, but then there might be another name for the stitch.
      I like the blue and brown combination, too.
      Have a great Sunday, Linda.

  5. Lovely stitching! Your top example looks like a fantastic way for me to add a fence to my next landscape-themed crazy quilts thanks for the inspiration!

    1. It is nice when we can see how a stitch would fit into a motif.

  6. I like your variation with uneven legs, brown and blue is very pretty together!

    1. Yes, the brown and blue work well together. The blue variegated thread is hand dyed by Sharon and so soft and lovely to work with.
