Seam decoration on crazy quilt block:

The seam embellishment detail on block 48 of the I Dropped the Button Box crazy quilt is made up of a line of twisted chain stitch which I  further embellished with little little cast on stitch flowers. These are worked in the same wool that I used for detail 324. I then added seed beads to the middle of each flower.
