Q is for .....

Quilt 
in Queen stitch
another counted thread stitch, more stitching and picking out then stitching again!
Stitched in a quilt like pattern, using three different variegated threads plus white.

There are two or three variations on this lovely little stitch, which can be worked in a vertical or diagonal direction, also some examples I have seen have had a central stitch but I prefer this one which has two vertical stitches each side with the horizontal pining stitches meeting in the middle.
