Interlaced running stitch is this week’s stitch study on Queenie’s Sunday stitch school challenge. The working is there on her blog.
TAST challenge has been running for ten years now. Running stitch was explored twice on it. First time the running stitch samples were simple and some samples  were taken after the idea of pattern darning. Second time around the running stitches were used on Kantha embroidery. Interlacing did not feature both times. I had bought this book some time ago, which had some options and project for interlaced and whipped running stitches. And Queenie was kind enough to include this stitch on SSS challenge.

The explorations
The sampler started with simple interlaced running stitch and a row of simple whipped running stitch[ the decision to whip the running stitches just came on its own!] the rest of the samples are variations of interlaced running stitches.

After working the running stitches in rows, this part of the sampler has running stitches worked to handle interlacing in different ways.

In the first sample the running [?] stitches are worked vertically. The next two rows are interlaced and whipped running stitch combination.
