    Found it with my Mom's things. I'm reasonably sure she didn't make it.

    The seams of the wedges are about 1/4 inch and they are pressed open. I think they are machine sewn. The plate appears to be appliqued with embroidery floss.

    Can someone name the stitch that was used?

    That is called a coral stitch. I have a book that has all those stitches by hand in it.

    It was one of the ones we learned in 4-H and it was called a Feather Stitch.

    Until then I thought all embroidery was just the plain crewel line stitch, french knots and satin stitch. We learned a whole bunch and did a sampler runner to showcase each of the stitches.

    Very nice work. You should do something special with it....frame it for your studio, perhaps?

    Not sure what the stitch is, but it is neat.

    It is the herringbone stitch.

    Or possibly the feather stitch is it.

    Excuse my eyes, I can't see it that well to tell the difference.
