    Where did you get your block? From Quilter's Cache? If so, did you also get the paperpiecing patterns?

    What exactly is the problem you are having?

    In my part of the world it is called 'fly' stitch that is if you are talking about a hand embroidery stitch which I saw once on a thread here, it was exactly the same IMHO, used randomly or in a line as a quilting pattern for an all over design on your quilt, I am sure you will find more info on it if you go to the top of the page and hit search, you can enter in 'Turkey Tracks Stitch.'

    Ooooops, I have just re-read your post and think now perhaps you are talking about a pattern, not a stitch, sorry my mistake! :oops: However the 'Turkey Tracks Stitch' is a lot of fun, check it out, if you have not seen it before!

    Now I'm confused, I think you mean a stitch after all, sorry, just a senior moment, and I am trying to be helpful!

    :) :)

    :) :) Glad you have found it, I haven't actually tried it on a quilt yet, only in my embroidery, but I intend to as I love it! I would like to see what it looks like on the back of a quilt, I am thinking the thread is hidden/buried between each stitch, am I right or else you would have a lot of odd looking stitches going all over the place on the back of the quilt! I wonder if anyone using this method could show us what the back looks like? I think it is so quaint and am just waiting for the right quilt to try it out on!

    I use french knots to tie, they look pretty.

    Carol, when you go from knot to knot do you go right the way through to the back of the quilt with your stitch?

    have you checked out this?

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-26051-1.htm
    or how about this
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-1753-1.htm

    If you keep reading through the posts on either thread they give more detail about how this is done! You only go through all layers once.

    I generally use a french knot with a crazy/scrappy quilt. Make a knot as usual and run your needle through the batting.
