    Twilling?

    I just picked up the Feb/march Quilters Newsletter mag. and found an article on twilling. It said it is an old fashioned embroidery stitch that is becoming popular again. I was intrigued by the pictures and had to try a little sample. I though it would be interesting to add to my Redwork quilt blocks. I didn't quite have it right for the first part but at A arrow indication I kind of got the hang of it. I like the raised texture it gives. Am I the only one that twilling is new to?

    I have heard of twilling for pieces of paper but not embroidery. You are doing a fantastic job.
    Quilting makes me happy!..

    That is beautiful! I don't think I would have the patience to do it.
