Sharon at http://pintangle.com has us doing the wheatear stitch this week. This is a new stitch for me. I drew the lines on the fabric as suggested for doing this stitch. Often I don't bother with the lines but I am glad that I did this time. It is a cool stitch and I definitely will try to use it again. I don't know what I will do about using it on a crazy quilt though. You certainly can't draw the lines on that.
