This week’s stitches are the same stitch. Compare the blocks. The left block uses two different threads with a metallic for the Mosaic Stitches. The right block is stitched in a single thread. Notice how your choice of threads influences the look of the block.
Stitch the blocks in Carolinas Stitch, below. This Diagonal Scotch and Mosaic Stitch is another one of Father B’s from the stitches he named for local needlework guild chapters.
They are not stitched yet but in the upper right and lower left are two green blocks. Because these are only partial blocks, they could be stitched now.
The lower left block is stitched in Giant Cashmere, below.
The upper right block is stitched in Interlocking Cross, below. This stitch is known as the Binding Stitch when it is made at the edges of canvases.
Come back next Sunday for two more blocks in this great project.
