Today we have a neat stitch, easy and good for floral motifs and crazy quilt embellishments.
I can't remember where I saw it, but the name tells us it is a Fly Stitch which has had Buttonhole Stitch worked over its V-shape.
Updated: For a French name, Mattia suggests: point de plume ou point de mouche festonné
First make a Fly Stitch:
Then come up outside the left top of the V
Make Buttonhole stitches over the left V-bar.
Anchor the stitch at the outer edge of the pointed V, so the Buttonholed fringe lies flat.
Come out on the other side of the tip of the V, and fill this side with Buttonhole stitches, too.
Anchor at the top outer edge.
Doesn't it look like a Peter Pan collar?
