crazy quilt block 79This hand embroidered detail is a seam on block 79.

The area of the patch is covered with Silk Ribbon Embroidery. I filled the area with woven roses and leaf stitch, then sprinkled French knots throughout. The French knots are worked in hand dyed rayon ribbon floss

Along the edge of the seam I worked sets of 3 detached chain stitches in a burgundy cotton Perle #8 thread. At the centre of each set I stitched a small pearl bead.

Crazy Quilt Seam Detail 517

The Crazy Quilt details  series of articles each highlight the hand embroidered seams and embellishments on the blocks that make up my crazy quilt I dropped the button box. I hope the eye candy and details give you ideas fro your own crazy quilting projects. For a free pattern of the block and information about the fabrics I used when I made up the block click on the block thumbnail.

This hand embroidered detail is a seam on block 78. This seam decoration is made up of some cotton cutwork lace that cut off the edge of an old petty coat found at a second hand charity shop. I hand dyed purple. Since it was disappearing under the button bead trail I emphasised it with a few straight stitches. To do this I used stranded cotton floss.

This is a small seam embellishment that is easily missed on the block as people look at the bead and button trail on the block. It is made up of feather stitch worked in rayon thread. I added small seed beads to each arm of the feather stitch.
