Fly stitch

Fly stitch is the first stitch for TAST 2012. I still have to prepare the fabric for my samplers, so I started with a small sampler for my stitch files. I made the same row of stitches with different threads. From top to bottom: perle 12, perle 8, Caron Watercolours, perle 5 and 3 threads of stranded floss. I've used this stitch many times and I share a few of them. The first one is a row of fly stitches on block 2 of my Crazy Monday quilt.

I wrote about my TAST 2007 fly stitch sampler here. To be continued!


  1. Thanks for sharing all of your stitch pics Annet. I did a few fly stitches last night but still haven't decided exactly what I'm going to do with all these stitches!

  2. Love your colorful field of fly stitches!

  3. I've done mine, too, Annet. I just have to post it.

  4. I like that you showed different experiments with varieties of stitching.

  5. Beautiful variations. Especially like the last sample.

  6. Happy to see you on this challenge again.

    1. Thanks, Chitra. I don't think I'm going to stitch all stitches again, but I'm sure I'll jump in from time to time. But first I have to stitch the last TAST stitch!


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment.
