Crazy Quilt Seam Detail 515

Crazy quilt block 78

This hand embroidered detail is a seam on block 78. If you click on the thumbnail of the block you will see a larger version.

This detail is what I call a button and bead trail as I have stitched on buttons and beads as if they had spilt over the block. They are fun but time consuming to do!

I usually start with the buttons and add the smaller beads around the edges of them.

This hand embroidered detail is a seam on block 78

This seam embellishment started with a small thin commercial braid that I attached to the block. Using perle cotton #5 , I worked a row of Herringbone Cretan stitch each side of the braid. I then laced it with a metallic thread, adding beads before surround them with a long bullion knot of about 25 wraps. The thread I used for them is cotton perle #5.

Detail 674 and 675 on my Freeform Hand Embroidery Sampler

Sampler section 50
Today I have a detail from  section 50 on my Love of Stitching Band Sampler. If you click on the thumbnail you can read about this section of the embroidery sampler and how I pieced together different fabrics as a foundation cloth.

Stitches 

This detail is illustrates an number of canvas work stitches used on Aida. There are a mix of threads both hand dyed and commercial in different fibers. In this area I used stranded cotton floss, cotton #8 Perle and cotton #5 perle, silk and wool.  I used mostly straight stitches worked in a similar manner to Bargello and I added some eyelets and Rhodes stitch.

Detail on Hand Embroidery Needlework Sampler

As I stitched the news was full of reports about the oil spill in the gulf of Mexico. So another piece of journalling appeared as I added a note about it.
