triangular feather stitch

today I did my sample for the triangular feather stitch form Sharon`s blog pintangle.  After I had made a frame shape which I had problems with at the corners, sorry could not work out how to use the stitch there I then had to put something in the centre. Having had Valentine`s day I took the easy route and just added a patchwork heart and attached it to the fabric with feather stitch.  Have been working on some hardanger for Helen my younger daughter, 7 pieces in all,   worked in pink and white which was what she requested, I think it will be a while before these are finished, have the main bits stitched but all the cutting and weaving to do and as I have designed them myself have got to work out what to do where. Maybe next time I will show a work in progress but no photos yet.

This is lovely. I have never done a triangular feather stitch. I missed several of your last posts as life gets busy so I have been catching up. Your TAST stitches are wonderful. Your quilt block is very pretty. Blissful Stitching MargieStitcher...

That's an ADVANCED frame! I love how the pattern forms small hearts, perfect to accompany the patchwork heart for this Valentine picture.

I like the way you used two rows of triangular feather stitch. It makes a nice frame. All four corners look identical, no problem.

Hello Margaret, I like the little heart using two different materials has given it a nice touch and the border is nice too, I think the corners have worked ok. I can't wait to see your hardhanger!
