TAST Week 43

This week's TAST is the Buttonhole Wheel Cup stitch. I found it to be a fun and very easy stitch to do. I've been doing my TAST sampler on a piece of Osnaberg and recently ran out of space. Before the sample I stitched last week, I sewed on an extra piece of fabric. Last week and this week I stitched to cover the seam. Since I stitched last week in the middle of the line, I decided with this stitch to extend each side to the end, which is why you are again seeing Weeks 40, 41 and 42.

And, here's the whole sampler, so far:

  1. You never disappoint! There is always such a simple but stunning use of the TAST stitch. I think this is perfect for covering up that seam. The sampler is coming along fine. It is a bit like an 'I spy quilt', so much to see.

  2. The sampler is awesome! How did you decide where to place each type of stitch? It all goes together so beatifully.

  3. I like how you have used these stitches to cover the seams. Those colors on your sampler are perfect to set off the stitching.

  4. Very nice stitching and your sampler is so very colourful and fun looking. Have a most lovely day!

  5. Beautiful sampler. Looking colorful.


  6. This is the first time I've seen your sampler and it's great! Your buttonhole wheel cups remind me of lime wedges.

  7. Thanks, Shami and Shifra (my no-repliable commenters), for your lovely comments. Shifra, each week I just look for an empty space that would fit what I think I want to do with the stitch. I did that until I filled up the piece of fabric.

  8. I love your sampler, Debbie. So many colors of threads. How did you learn to do this?

  9. Hi Debbie, a wonderful array of colours on your sampler with great stitching !!!
