Sunday Stitch School No. 134 Slanted Blanket stitch

Just in time to hand in my work..

Perle Thread on Aida.  Easy to place the stitches with marked holes.

 

I used Cottage Garden Thread for this line.  Easy to see how the Aida is better, keeping the stitches the same.

 

 

This was the easiest of all three examples.  The slant seemed to arrive with no thought to the direction and finished quickly.  The colour tone is not correct as the yellow is the same as in the first one and the fabric in the second.  The daylight was not so good and that’s my excuse. :-)))

This stitch will be used often.  I’m looking forward to the next one.

The stitch  and directions can be found here at Queenie’s Sunday Stitch School.

  1. I had the same experience – that it was child’s play on Aida and went even more smoothly on freeform.
    Your stitches are even, neat and nice.
    Taking photos in bad daylight is difficult.

    • Thank you Queenie. I’ve begun the latest stitch, which, also, is an easy one to do.

  2. Blanket stitch, in all its forms, is always one of my favourites. Aida always seems to aid in stitch definition, but I like what you did with the paisley.

    • Yes – so many ways of using Blanket stitch and so many additions to it as well. Thanks for the ‘like’ it’s my favourite too.

  3. I very much like the last use of the stitch. It is really pretty. Lighting makes such a huge difference, and those photos are a perfect example of that.

  4. I liked the way the paisley shape made the stitching easy. For some reason- it just worked well for me.
