CQ Block 1 Feather and Blanket Stitch
On the left is a feather stitch with green, straight stitches and beads. The butterflies are silk ribbon with pistol stitches for the antenna and 12 bullion wraps for the body.
To the right is a vine with the fly stitch and beads. Silk ribbon bees hum over the vine.
Here is another simple version of the feather stitch with silk ribbon flowers and beads.
Note: Some CQ books will have either Blanket Stitch or also Buttonhole stitch. Judith Baker Montano calls it a Buttonhole stitch and Joan Waldman has it as blanket (buttonhole) stitch
