Flower embroidery day 4: blanket stitch flowers
Blanket stitch is a wonderful stitch for open and large motifs. You can use the blanket stitch to fill areas completely or partially. The smaller the space between stitches, the more of the underground fabric you will cover. Blanket stitch is a very economic stitch, leaving not much thread in the back, but a lot on the front. It works best with rounded shapes, like ovals or circles, but also scalloped edges.
