    It's a longer than normal stitch, done by hand. Have a look at this video

    I used size 12 thread on the spool and hand stitched. Tiger Tape was a big help in keeping the stitches evenly spaced.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.

    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    I think you could do long stitch quilting with a sewing machine, straight line quilting use a longer stitch length.
