Crazy Quilt Seam Detail 451

Crazy quilt hand embroidered seam detailWith this seam I first embroidered a row of herringbone. I used a hand dyed silk thread. I next laced the herringbone with rayon ribbon floss. The beads were vintage beads fare taken from a necklace found in a garage sale. I pulled the string of beads apart and these had an interesting texture to them. This seam is on block 67 of the I dropped the button box Quilt.
