Crazy Quilt Seam Detail 434

crazy quilt block embroidery seam detailThis  seam was first covered with some braid then the edges were further embellished with a line of detached chain stitches worked in  cotton perle #5 , which were interspersed with straight stitches worked in rayon ribbon floss. The little charm is a souvenir from Holland.

The seam is on block 64 of the I dropped the Button Box Quilt.

In the process of documenting the seam decorations on this quilt, as I get to each block I am diagramming it out for readers as a free crazy quilt pattern. Links to these free pattern pages are listed on the CQ details FAQ page.

    Very pretty. I love the way you manage to think in detail on so many levels at once – the individual seam, how it fits in the block, how the block fits with the whole piece. x
