Crazy Quilt Seam Detail 548 and 549

Crazy quilt block 84Today I have two crazy quilt seam details to share. Both are from block 84 of my I dropped the button Box Crazy Quilt.

The first seam decoration is a very simple embellishment that even beginners can work.

I worked a line of running stitches following the seam. I did not pull them too tight as I knew I wanted to lace through them. I used a knitting ribbon yarn and woven it under the running stitches. I then added 3 straight stitches in the dips created by the yarn. I used a hand dyed cotton perle  #8.

The second detail I would like to share today is a line of Palestrina stitch worked very wide so you can see the bars of the stitch. In between the bars I added a detached chain stitch. This is a hand dyed silk thread.
