Feather stitch

Feather stitchFeather stitch is also known as single coral stitch and briar stitch. Feather stitch is found extensively on traditional English smocks and on antique crazy quilts.

The feathery line created is useful as a smocking stitch and a needlework stitch as it is equally effective when worked in straight lines or following curves.
There are many arrangements and combinations of this stitch.


Today as a stitch it is still used by stitchers who are interested in the traditional and historical needlework crafts and by contemporary needle workers. This versatile stitch can be found worked today in smocking and is still one of the most popular stitches in crazy quilting. Feather stitch is actually a variety of buttonhole stitch.

When working this stitch it is useful to imagine 4 parallel lines. It is useful to mark the fabric with guide-lines using a water dissolvable marker or fade out fabric marker.
