For Day 97 the detail I am featuring is another example of using rick rack in crazy quilting. The rick rack has been attached with Zig Zag Chain using DMC pearl #5 thread. I have stitched three straight stitches between the V’s of the braid, then topped with seed beads. This is a simple quick seam embellishment that I often use when ever I get stuck for an idea!
If you are just swinging by, or a search engine has landed you here, this is day 97 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!
