WIP on Wednesday

I'm continuing with my crazy quilt blocks.  This week, it's TAST #19 (only 5 behind, I think) -- featuring Half Chevron Stitch.  Once I got the hang of it, I rather enjoyed this stitch and had quite a bit of work done by the end of last week.  However, I was stymied as to what to do to fill in that large red section in the centre -- until today.  As of this post, all that's left to do is to add a few more tiny beads to give it some sparkle.

It's occurred to me, too, that I haven't shared Week 18's block with you -- Crossed Blanket Stitch.  Not much fun, but in the end the block didn't turn out too badly.  :-)

Week 20's stitch is the Dreaded Bullion Knot.  Maybe at last I'll master it, and it won't be 'dreaded' any more!

I love the half chevron stitch Margaret. Never really knew the name before. I took a workshop from Jane Sassaman a few years ago and she illustrated using it around leaves for effect. I can vary the length and width for different feels.
Your blocks are great.

That Bullion Stitch has always caused me trouble! My MIL tried to explain her method, but for whatever reason, it just didn't work for me! Here's hoping you have greater success with it!
