With this being the second last day in this series I thought I would feature a detail that is a bit different. What you are looking at is a piece of lace which has had the negative area of the pattern picked out in French knots. The threads used are a superfine wool which is the same thickness of a single strand of DMC cotton floss.
The spider web is the traditional symbol of good luck found on many crazy quilts. I stitched it in a metallic thread next to a cluster of flowers. Flower motifs have been made of Buttonhole Wheels, French knots and Bullion knots. For those who have problems with bullion stitches I have some tips for working bullion stitch here. Leaves are detached chain stitches.
If you have enjoyed this series 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!
If you are just swinging by, a search engine has landed you here, this is day 99 in the series. If you want to print out this series 100 details for 100 days they are listed under that category in this blog.
