Embroider a chain stitch picture Quilting

The second way to embroider the house picture is Intense. It is still plain, but I use more stitches. This adds a bit more interest and texture to the piece.

A chain stitch is a great way to fill in sections when embroidering images. In the house embroidery, I use a chain stitch to embroider the shutters and the door. I used two threads of embroidery thread.

Chain stitch embroidery in progress

The shutters have three chains. I worked back and forth.

They are relatively flat rather than rounded. There is a bit of background peeking through the stitches, but not very much. If you want a more open look, you can make the chains more open.

The door is worked in chain stitch in up and down chains.

If you want, you can fill out whole pictures with a chain stitch. It’s a quick way to add color. The chains imitate color lines.

If you want an easier stitch option, the picture will look good when done in full reverse stitch. I call this the option for relaxed sewing.
