Crazy Quilt Seam Detail 488

Y2K Crazy quilt Block 74Today I would like to share a detail on block 74 of the I Dropped the Button Box Crazy Quilt. If you click on the thumbnail you will be taken to a free pattern of the block and information about the fabrics I used when I made up the block.

This is a detail on the block. I first worked a line of buttonhole stitch in perle #5 cotton and then in silk thread I added French knots and cast on stitch loops. The seam was then finished with seed beads and bugle beads.

    Did you do the tatted lace yourself? I am just learning to tat again after many years away from it, and I think that the tatting really adds to that seam.

    I like the interesting french knot-cast on stitches. Is there a place to find instructions? or can you talk me thru it? Thx, Barb from Arizona
