This is the last detail on section 25. Readers who are tired of crazy quilting will be pleased to know that section 26 returns to a normal band sampler format.
This last seam is the embellished the edge of lace which has bean beaded and decorated with detached chain stitch.
Along the bottom edge of the lace I used straight stitches and long tail detached chain stitches worked in perle cotton #5 thread.
This section of the sampler was worked during 2007.
The For Love of Stitching Band Sampler is 15 cm (6 inches) wide. It consists of different strips of fabric which are are stitched together to form one long strip. It currently measures 24.8 yards or 22.75 metres long and I have more bands to add.
