Do A Double Stitch!

Double Stitch? What is that you may ask? Well let me assure you - it is rustic! If you visit the fine people over at Mountain Patchwork you will find an old fashioned way of piecing different quilt blocks. I think it looks quite homey and the history behind it is most enchanting.

It is also known as Promise Stitch. Treadleworks by Tammy has step-by-step instructions and pictures to follow.

So why not pick your favorite block and give it a try! Let us know what you think.


  1. Welcome to Blogging, Kelli! You are off to a great start with plenty of good things to come. The Double Stitch makes a really finish to a block, especially on the Log Cabin and it's easy to do. Ann :)

  2. Hi Kelly-Ann, Cngratulate with your new blog! I want to be come an follower to your blog, but you have not connect the "place" to your blog :o) I will try to follow your blog anyway!

  3. Welcome to blog land! It's great fun and a cool way to connect. I'm not necessarily a "primitive" person although I do decorate in the cabin in the woods thing. At least that's what my children say, I just think it comfortable! I like things done in old-fashioned ways so you can be sure I'll be checking out these links.

  8. Hi, Kelly, I'm very much enjoying your blog. Keep up the good work!
    I too am making one of the Mountain Patchwork patterns, although I'm not sure what I'll do with it when it's finished. Can't wait to see what yours comes out like.
