Today I am featuring another simple seam embellishment for crazy quilting.
In DMC Pearl 5 I worked two rows of Chevron stitch back to back.
Next I added an arrangement of straight stitches and detached chain stitches with a seed bead stitched at the base of the arrangement in the V area of the chevron stitches.
The little flowers look like beads but they are tiny buttons. They are a little surprise for anyone who looks close enough at the block.

Chevron stitch is just about my favorite base stitch…I really use it a lot in CQ Seam combinations.
Sharon, have you thought about setting up a flickr group for this? Or just for stitch combos in general? I was actually looking around Flickr and couldn’t find it…or do you know of another one?
I love your 100 details in 100 days. I am just now sewing on a block in a crazy RR I started this spring. And I have found a lot of very good ideas on your site. And I have recomended it to all the other members on my RR. I have got a pre wiew on my two hearts in the RR and I am very pleased with them. Can’t wait to get them back.
