Today I thought I would feature a ‘hidden’ seam embellishment which runs along the bottom of the lace on this crazy quilt block .
Along the bottom of the lace is two straight stiches worked in V a horizontal manner. It is actually arrow stitch turned around. This foundation of stitches was then laced with a fine rayon knitting ribbon. It was laced in the same manner as you lace Twisted lattice band
Above this band is a line of blue transparent novelty beads which are shaped like a butterfly. Because they are transparent they disappear against the background and you can imagine the surprise when people notice them. They act a little discovered treasure. These are interspersed with a bugle bead.
Along the top of the lace, on each flower bud motif, is a cluster of 5straight stitches. Three of these stiches are worked in DMC Pearl 8 and two are worked in a metallic thread. They are topped off with a seed bead.
