After exploring this fern stitch with few more samples the stitch sampler was completed.

3.Starting with two more samples of fern stitch rows worked together, the fern stitch is whipped in the third sample, and laced in the fourth sample. The pink thread is laced through individual fern stitches in the fifth sample.

4.In these samples the fern stitches are worked diagonally. The last two samples would be good as filling stitches.

5.The first sample has individual fern stitch and its inverted version worked alternatively. Two extra straight stitches are added in the second sample. French knots and detached chain stitches are worked along with fern stitch in the last two samples.

This is an easy and versatile stitch to work with. Similar to fly stitch. I enjoyed working on this sampler. Band sampler is easier for exploring new stitches.
