Day 10 and we are stitching…
This is a very versatile stitch and fills in spaces nice and quick. There are lots of variations to this you can experiment with once you get the basics.
Stitch as follows…
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.
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.
How to do Trellis Stitch…
Day 11 will be Pistol Stitch and Seed Stitch… you can head to that post here… Day 11 Stitching
