This seam is to be found on block 69 of the I dropped the button box Quilt. I worked a line of double herringbone. The first line of herringbone is worked in a thicker wool thread. To set up a contrast I worked the the second line of herringbone in 2 strands of cotton floss. In the same thread I added some detached chain stitches.
