CQ Detail 18

CQ Detail 18


This button was stitched on using 4 straight stitches.


A metallic thread called Arista produced by Anchor

Placement and Foundation Fabric:

This button is placed on piece 3 on the diagram used when I introduced block 3.  At the same time I also talked about the foundation fabrics I used.


The button is a vintage hand carved shell button. It is pearlescent so when it shifts the colours move from musk pink to grey. It really is quite lovely in life but not under the lens of a camera.


What is the back story?
This regularly published series aims to illustrate and document the hand embroidered seams, embellishments and decorations on my crazy quilt I dropped the button box. All articles are categorised in the projects under Crazy Quilt details which enables readers to browse back through the series.
Free Crazy quilt block patterns
In the process of documenting the seam decorations on this quilt, as I get to each block I am diagramming it out for readers as a free crazy quilt pattern. Links to these free pattern pages are listed on the CQ details FAQ page.
