We’re still working along the bottom edge, and this week it’s diagonal scotch stitches. I stitched them with two colors, but you can stitch them with one if you prefer.
First I stitched with the main color. I selected a lighter color to serve as a contrast to the surrounding areas.
I stitched this in back and forth horizontal rows, reflected in the numbering on the diagrams.
I stitched all of this part first, then stitched the next part.
I chose a darker color to provide some contrast in the diagonal scotch. If you’re using metallics, this might be a good place to use them.
Placement for this should be pretty easy, since you’re filling in the spaces left by the first stitches.
That’s it for this week – more next week!
