Day four is an embellishment which consists of two rows of Herringbone stitch worked in rayon ribbon floss. The rows are worked back to back. The next thing I did was to lace both rows with a thick thread, which left a neat centre between the rows for a bead. This embroidery is couching a half inch wide ribbon in place as it covers the seam.
If you are just swinging by, or a search engine has landed you here, this is day 4 in a series of articles that aim to give you embellishment ideas that you can use in your crazy quilting. If you want to print out this series 100 details for 100 days they are listed under that category.
Have you enjoyed this series? If so you may be interested in a tutorial I have written on how to work decorative crazy quilt seams. The tutorial is a comprehensive tutorial that I converted to a pdf file (a link to the download is in the article) When I converted it I realised how comprehensive it was. At 19 pages of information it is a resource worth investigating!
Have you seen my Stitchers Templates?
As someone who loves crazy quilting and embroidery, I designed these templates with other stitchers in mind. With my templates, you can create hundreds of different patterns to apply to your stitching and crazy quilting projects. They are easy to use, totally clear so you can position them easily and they are compact in your sewing box.
To see what they look like, find out about the free ebook of patterns that come with them visit the information pages.
Or go directly to the Pintangle shop to purchase them.
Yours has always been one of my favorite blogs. Now I want to thank you for sharing your wonderful talent through the 100 stitches for 100 days. Your time is just as limited as all of ours, but we will certainly benefit from your generosity.
Thanks for this new series of ‘details’ I love it!!!
btw, Robin (beadlust) is such an amazing artist. I just run out of complimentary adjetives while viewing her beaded beauties / pictures on her blog : )
Stunning. I found you through a link on the message board at http://www.patternreview.com. I’m new to blogs and am enjoying the eye candy. Thank for sharing your beautiful work. Very inspirational.
I had suggested maybe a yahoo group for the 100 details group. I would like to see the same seam treatments displayed together, on the same page. They become separated on the CQ flickr page.
