What’s Your Favorite Decorative Stitch?

It sometimes seems like I spend more time daydreaming over my decorative stitches than I do actually using them – and I use them a LOT! No matter what quilt I am making, I tend to come back to using a few stitches regularly. Here’s one of my favorites – if you looked closely you would find it used more than once on most of my quilts 🙂

What is your favorite stitch? Satin stitch? Flowers? My friend Sandra has a “crowns” stitch that I am very envious of – my machine doesn’t have that one!
