DMC perle 5

Placement and Foundation Fabric:

This lace covers the seam that borders piece 6 and piece 3 and 2 on the diagram used when I introduced block 3.  At the same time I also talked about the foundation fabrics I used.

Type of lace

This lace is nylon (fairly cheap and ordinary) which I hand dyed


Disperse dyes (also known as transfer dyes) on the lace

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.
