This detail on block 20, is a series of fly stitches that run along the edge of a braid that runs along the edge piece 5 on the block.
As I explained when I introduced the block it has a theatre theme because when Eve was very active in the theatre both front of house and back stage.

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.
I have released the block patterns and stitch ideas for non commercial use but I retain all copyright. Please attribute the work to me, and link back to this blog. You may not take whole articles from this series and republish online. Link please dont republish.
I really like this use of the fly stitch. i shy away from braided embellishments because I usually don’t know what to do with them. Thank you so much for sharing this idea!
