Tast week 18
Crossed Buttonhole stitch

Sharon's blog pintangle tast


Close up of crossed buttonhole stitch. I like the way that when looked at from a distance on from on top it looks like cross stitch but you have a surprise when you look close up.

 I have used this for couching different shapes and it seem to work well. I like the different effects you can get just by changing the stitch length. A good one for my crazy quilt.


  1. What a good idea to use this stitch for couching!

  2. went to post a comment and Miriam has taken the words out of my mouth, likewise I was going to say a great stitch for couching.
