TAST week 41: knotted loop stitch

Knotted loop stitches used for background leaves.

The TAST stitch for week 41 is the knotted loop stitch. Sharon must have read my mind as I needed a stitch to create leaves on the Crazy Violets Quilt for the CQJP 2012. Here is the outline, drawn with a pencil. It can be erased if necessary.

I tried to make the stitches more slantwise, but didn't succeed.

These leaves form the background for a flower spray.

Ribbon stitch flowers.

Looped straight stitch purple flowers and scrunched gathered flowers.
The flower spray isn't finished yet.


  1. Your leaves are nice and airy, a super addition to the lovely flower spray.

  2. I agree with Connie, the airy leaves are just perfect for the colourful yellow and purple block. They add a superb contrast.

  3. Very Beautiful! Purple and yellow...a favorite color combination. Can't wait to see the whole block.

  4. This is very nice! Wonderful stitching, and a great design!

  5. A beautiful block! I like the flower spray surrounded by the leaves of the new stitch!

  6. Beautiful stitches my dear. Your attention to detail with your foundation work truly results in perfection of the finished flowers and leaves. Blissful Stitching...

  7. these leaves work so well with the fabric, colour and texture and the flowers all so good together

  8. your leaves so airy are beautiful with your flowers

  9. Every time is a Dream.
    Lot a kisses.
