Today is all about Trellis Stitch. This is very versatile and fills in spaces nice and quick.

For Petal 12 – Stitch long vertical rows evenly spaced apart to fill the shape and then stitch long horizontal rows over the top to form a grid.

You could leave it as a single grid and stitch your digonal stitches now on the cross sections to anchor the threads down or you could stitch a second grid over the top of the first to add a bit of interest like so…

Stitch tiny diagonal stitches over each of the cross sections to anchor the trellis to the fabric.

Thats your Trellis Stitch complete, we will come back and stitch the outline to completely finish the petal on another day.
