Thank you so much, I just had to rip out a bunch of blanket stitch flowers cuz they all rolled over and yours is the only help I've found on getting the stitches to stay put on a curve.

You saved my project!!!!!!!!!!

Houseelf

Thank you. I use button hole stitch the most -for hand appliques.

Hi Helen,

I'm enjoying your stitching lessons and look forward to Sundays. They get me get back into the mood to stitch again. Your stitching is beautiful and even.
Thank you. ;-)

I use the blanket stitch a lot (since I am unable to applique round shapes, mine always turn square...). I just never thought of making flowers of it. Beautiful! Can't wait to start! Thank you!

Jenny at Always Quilting

Helen, Thank you for a great Blanket stitch tutorial. You have solved those tricky curved stiches so easily.

Anne Davis

Hi Helen
I've always worked the stitches towards me rather than away from me, I don't know why. Is one way easier than the other?
Cheers
Anne

I love the versatility of the button hole stitch, it is one of my favourites.

    Colourque (R) is a techique I developed and use on many of my projects. It is nothing scientific, anyone can do it, it is meant to be fun and easy to do... it is simply using coloured pencils on fabric to get an applique effect. 'Faux Applique' a comprehensive technique book on the method is due for release late November. Watch this space!
