TAST 2012, week 17 - Wheatear stitch

This is a sofa cover back which I have printed the design using fabric printing.  Then I have embroidered the diamond shaped lines using wheatear stitch.  Inside of doing a simple line using stem or chain stitch,  wheatear stitch line looks the best.  Enlarge the image to get a clear view of the stitch. 

 One more design using wheatear stitch in in progress.  Have a look at the progressed work so far.  It is a geometrical design. 

The closeup of the stitch.

Will post the completed design after completing.

Till then,
Happy Embroidering.
