Blanket Stitch

13 11 2009

The blanket stitch is frequently used around the edges of applique.  It can also be used as an outline stitch.  My video was done around a small star so the blanket stitch doesn’t flow like it would over a longer line.  If I hear it is confusing I’ll record again when I’m working on something less choppy.

This block from “A Stitcher’s Garden” by Bird Brain Designs shows the use of the blanket stitch as an outline.  (These blocks have been on this site before.)

Excellent! I sent my friend an email to come here. I was going to try to do something like this myself but couldn’t get the “camera guy” [aka oldest son] to cooperate.
