TAST Week 5

These are my samples of the Chevron stitch for TAST, week 5 already. I have already taken one of Sharon's classes but am now convinced that I need to sign up for the Personal Library of Stitches. The more I do the more I like what I am doing. I had a little trouble with the mechanics of this stitch in the beginning but once I got going I really enjoyed it. I started out with the Aida cloth using Watercolours by Caron and a DMC thread. The bottom row is Anchor Metallic Pearl Cotton. And it was on clearance and my favorite metallic thread so far so I guess I better get some more before they run out. The crazy quilt square, which is my first also has the Chevron stitch with the same threads. I need to go back and add the second row of stitching on the CQ block like I did on the bottom row of the Aida cloth. I had some fabric that I really wanted to use for a crazy quilt block and did not realize that I just had too much in the way of prints and not enough in the way of solids. I will have to use some bright colors in my threads to make them stand out. I will continue with this block for several more stitches. The next one will have more solid colors.
