Fan Stitch

 
I'm curious. Has anyone been playing with this stitch? Imagine lots of colorful fans. I think it is super-neato.
Also would be handy for depicting citrus slices! You know, without the dangly things, of course.
Hint: it's a blanket stitch. Of sorts. Who's tried it? It's in my boOoOoOok!
