...a doodle or two mostly about quilting
I have always called this stitch a running stitch. I like it in primitive embroidery. Maybe someone else will come along with a proper name for it. (grin) Winona
My mom always called that a running stitch. My mom was born in 1901 and used that stitch when she would put her name on the back of a quilt. I don't know whether people still use the stitch now or not. Most people use fancy labels for their quilts.
This is a running stitch. I too like it in Primitive Embroidery projects. It's also a wonderful beginner stitch for teaching children embroidery and hand sewing skills.
My "guess" was going to be a running stitch. But I haven't done any embroidery for years...it is VERY, VERY cool!!
I've always called it a running stitch too - there's a tutorial here: http://www.needlenthread.com/2006/10/embroidery-stitch-video-tutorial.html blessings, marlene
