place stitches at the outside points.
Update - last night I stitched a new temari with this unusual technique of stitching a kiku herringbone at the inside points combined with a wide herringbone at the outside points of the circular motif. I really like the result!

done with herringbone stitching.
Week 5 stitch for TAST is herringbone! We temari stitchers use this one all the time. Most often it's a kiku herringbone. Sharon challenged us to go beyond what we've done before and try something different. I've never seen it done like this with the outside points made as a wide stitch instead of a sharp point. Needs work to make it neater but I think this will be a keeper.
I added an extra row of blue metallic on top like Sharon's double herringbone, version 2.
