CQ Detail 72

crazy quilt block detail


This seam is embellished with a braid that is couched down with herringbone stitch


DMC cotton floss

Placement and Foundation Fabric:

This seam buts against pieces 1,2 and 3 and piece 4 on the diagram used when I introduced block 10. In the same article I also talked about the foundation fabrics I used.


This braid was found in remnant bag.


Disperse dyes (also known as transfer dyes) was used on the braid.

What is the 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.
For a stitch guide to hand embroidery stitches, instructions can be found in my stitch dictionary
