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.

Crazy quilt Block 76

This series Crazy Quilt details  highlight the hand embroidered seams and embellishments on the blocks that make up my crazy quilt I dropped the button box. 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 76. The seam detail is tucked int he corner of the block and made up of detached chain stitches that are worked using perle #5 thread. They are worked both sides of a ribbon that covers the seam.  I then threaded a novelty thread under them weaving the thread from one side to the other. It is a light knitting yarn that attracted my eye.

Below the seam are two curves that I worked in stem stitch using a hand dyed cotton thread. I used the same thread for the detached chain stitches before adding the seed beads.
