Creating Knitted Texture with Quilting!

This month’s Stashin’ with Stephanie quilt design, Cables, was inspired by my other crafting love … knitting. Since the design resembles a knitted cable pattern, I thought it was only appropriate that I carry the knitting theme through to the quilting as well.

I created a 1-inch square “V” stitch to mimic the look of the stockinette knitting stitch, where all the knit stitches are on the right side and all the purl bumps are on the wrong side.

This is a very easy stitch to master and it doesn’t matter if they are all perfect, because in the end all you see is the texture.

It does take a little time, but it’s faster than other techniques like rulerwork, so I highly recommend giving it a go if your quilt calls for it.
