This featured seam embellishment Is a simple seam treatment that was started with a row of Herringbone which was worked to hold down some atin ribbon. The row was then tied with small crosses worked in contrasting thread. One one side a series of straight stitches were topped off with a novelty bead. On the other side another novelty bead was also added.
For anyone who has been following this series you may be interested in the online classes I announced earlier in the week. (That’s my plug of the day – now lets get on with stuff)
This morning I settled down with a cuppa to do the weeks round up of what people have been doing in this series and realised people are still as keen as ever even though we are nearly two thirds through the series. I had expected energy to flag but that is not the case.
Annie Whitsed of Annies Crazy World has consistently posted details of her crazy quilting work all week.
Pam Kellogg of Kitty & Me Designs has also regularly published free designs that can used as motifs in crazy quilting. I have been stashing them aside in a file for future use.
Rissa of Rissas Pieces has been offering tips on aspects of stitching and has posted an image of the contents of her travelling sewing box.
Linda of Chloe’s Place has also published an image of the contents of a sewing cabinet she has been documenting for a local museum.
Jo of No Matter Where I Go I Always Meet Myself There has published a handy hint on how to make perfect buttonhole wheels. Jo has the paisley bug which I am trying to resist until I finish writing the latest online lesson but I have has a fascination with paisley design for a long time and even have some blocks just waiting for me.
Debbie of Needle Lil More Time to Sew has regularly featured aspects of her handwork on her crazy quilt blocks. Today she has featured a delightful Japanese woman dressed in a Kimono. Don’t miss it as she is fabulous.
Julia Camille’s Place has also regularly been posting details of the work on the Kimono block.

Debra of Design Studio and has been stitching and has more details of her latest crazy quilt block on in her flickr album.
Maureen of Kenmaurscorner came up with a great idea of using a similar idea to the details series to feature 50 days: 50 fabric and fibre postcards Don’t miss this series. I will be reading with interest what Maureen does.
Today however it is the most delightful sunny day I think spring is a dash early this year and I am headed out to the garden.
For anyone just swinging by this series of posts are listed under 100 details for 100 days in this blog. Over on Flickr it is associated with the Crazyquilting Group and photos are tagged 100detailsin100days
Debra I picked up the little Kimono charm in Chine when I was visiting there – its made of fimo! and only about as big as a 5c piece.
Susan – one of th ereeasons crazy quilting is so difficult to copy faithfully is that everyone has access to different stuff – thats waht makes each block unique. I am sure what you have to hand will work in its own way.
That’s a cute little kimono button!
Sharon, I love today’s detail. Now I have to figure out how I can do it without those cool beads. I have some other ones that just came in the mail that might work. Not the same – but what do I do that is! Thanks for the link, too.
