Take a Stitch Tuesday

Next week will be the last TAST stitch for the year as I have decided to take a  break after stitch 140. As I have said before I will return next year to continue the series if there is interest.  With the holiday season nearly here people are busy stitching gifts  and with family. So after next week I am taking a TAST break. If you are worried about losing touch please Subscribe to my newsletter

Crazy Quilt Seam Detail 540

Crazy quilt block 82This is the last detail found on block 82 of my I dropped the button Box Crazy Quilt.

Although at first glance it looks like a button cluster it is actually covering a seam. The seam was covered with a black ribbon that has a gold pattern woven into it. the ribbon was very wide, so I decided to turn it into feature and draw attention to it with a few buttons.  They are a mix of modern and vintage buttons. Well…I went a bit mad with the buttons and almost complete hid the ribbon!

Crazy Quilt Seam Detail 539

Crazy quilt block 82This detail is a seam of hand embroidery found on block 82 of my I dropped the button Box Crazy Quilt. 

Chevron stitch is a popular basic stitch for crazy quilters which is easily worked and lends itself to lots of variation. This is double row of chevron stitch worked in two colours using a cotton perle#5 thread. I then topped it off with detached chain and straight stitches arranged with the aid of a bead to look like little flowers. These were worked in perle #8.
