This a row of stitching has a foundation line of herringbone which I then laced with chenille thread. I then tucked  fly stitches into the valleys of the curves.

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.

  1. I appreciate this post very much. I love the feel and look of Chenille, but I am always at odds on how to use it. Threading it through material always ends in disaster for me. I love good ideas for using it. Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful work:)
