100 details for 100 days Day 47


Today I am featuring another simple seam embellishment for crazy quilting.

In DMC Pearl 5 I worked two rows of Chevron stitch back to back.

Next I added an arrangement of straight stitches and detached chain stitches with a seed bead stitched at the base of the arrangement in the V area of the chevron stitches.

The little flowers look like beads but they are tiny buttons. They are a little surprise for anyone who looks close enough at the block.

A Hot Fabric Postcard

Kay Susan of smockery has jumped in to the 6 x 4 lives challenge.

The challenge is to produce a fiber postcard once a month that records what you have been exploring, doing, or thinking about. Kay Susan has illustrated how she made her fabric postcard which reflects heat wave those in the Northern hemisphere are currently experiencing.

6 x 4 lives is not swap challenge, but a personal challenge. The format of a fabric postcard can be used to explore telling stories visually, or experimenting with techniques.
