When it comes to quilting, finding the right stitch can make all the difference in how your quilt turns out. You either want that stitch to accentuate a block or distract from it.
This super cute stitch acts as a frame. If you have a block with a pattern you absolutely adore, this is the way to highlight it.
Luckily, this stitch is particularly easy to do, especially if you have a long arm. If you don’t have a long arm, you can still easily do this stitch. A ruler with a flat edge as well as a rounded edge helps.
Use your ruler to create equally sized stitches, going around six times to create a hexagon. Once that’s done, use the rounded side of your ruler to create a scalloped pattern on the inside.
YouTuber Natalie Bonner has created a simple tutorial on how to make this adorable stitch come to life. It doesn’t take a lot of time to do, so if you feel like your quilt is in desperate need of something, this is it.
