This 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.
