TAST Week 6

This week's TAST 6 stitch is the chevron stitch. I decided to spend less time on it this week and make just a short experiment. Here's what I tried this week. It came from the Embeadery book in my list below.

I've been going through my crazy quilting books to see different things done with the stitches in the TAST. I was surprised to find that I have nine different books on the subject! Here's a list:

Crazy Quilt Stitches(1981) by Dorothy Bond
The Crazy Quilt Handbook (1986) by Judith Montano
Elegant Stitches (1995) by Judith Baker Montano
The Magic of Crazy Quilting (1998) by J. Marsha Michler
Crazy Quilting (1998) by Christine Dabbs
Treasury of Crazy Quilt Stitches (1999) by Carol Samples
Motifs for Crazy Quilting (2002) by J. Marsha Michler
Embeadery-Using classic embroidery stitches in beadwork (2005) by Margaret Ball
Embellishing Crazy Quilts (2011) Kathy Seaman Shaw

I have a good number of other embroidery and beading books, but these are the ones that focus on crazy quilting. 




  1. I've been following along. Very interesting stitching. Hope all is well with you and family.

  2. Lovely stitching!! I've been wanting to try beading on little quilts, especially in a chevron type design on the edges. Very cool!

  3. Beaded chevron looking beautiful..

  4. Beautiful. You seem to be able to use beading in almost every project, and so tasteful.

  5. I love your examples. Thanks for the stitch reference book list.

  6. Beautiful stitching. I love beads.

  7. love the use of beads with this stitch.
    nice work.

    i think i have every one of those books except for the very last one. you'll have to give us a review of it.
