Block 73Today I would like to share the last close detail on block 73 of the I Dropped the Button Box Crazy Quilt.

If you click on the thumbnail of the block you will not only see it larger, you will be taken to a free pattern of the block and information about the fabrics I used when I made up the block.

This detail is a simple treatment for crazy quilting and one people always react to. It is a wide piece os satin ribbon which I tacked on to the block before securing it permanently using a row of chevron stitch worked on each side of the ribbon. I used a hand dyed cotton perle #5 thread. Along the middle of the ribbon I added 3 heart shaped novelty beads.

As I say, it is a simple and quick seam embellishment that because the ribbon is wide can add emphasis.

Block 73Today I would like to share another embroidered seam detail on block 73 of the I Dropped the Button Box Crazy Quilt. If you click on the thumbnail you will be taken to a free pattern of the block and information about the fabrics I used when I made up the block.

This seam is embellished with two very simple basic hand embroidery stitches and I often recommend this combination to crazy quilters who are  beginners as the seam is simply a line of herringbone stitch worked in cotton perle#5 and then I added a line of detached chain stitches arranged in a fan shape. At the base of these I stitches a small seed bead.

The plastic watering can charm came in pack of charms that had a garden theme.
