Sharon at http://pintangle.com/ has been introducing me to many new stitches this year. That is a good thing! I don't always grasp them right away but generally I persist until I get it. This one came fairly quick. I am always grateful when that happens. I stitched a sample on a scrap of fabric that I had previously experimented on, top photo. If I keep adding stitches to that it could end up looking kind of interesting. Once I felt confident in doing the stitch I added it to the crazy quilt block, bottom photo.
