Flame Stitch

Loving the flame stitch right now. It has been enjoying great popularity, but was actually first introduced in the early 13th century. The origins are fairly obscure. It seems that it developed out of a combination of a brick stitch and zig-zag stitch known as hungarian stitch. Used in modern color ways from walls and floors to pillows and textiles the flames stitch is back in a big way!
