Single Feather Stitch

The feather-stitch family encompasses several stitches, including the single feather stitch, the (regular) feather stitch, and the long-arm feather stitch (also called the Cretan or quill stitch). The single feather stitch is similar to the blanket stitch. The only difference is that the stitches are slanted instead of being straight.
