crazy quilt hand embroidered seam detail

Seam decoration on crazy quilt block:

This is part of crazy quilt block 50. This seam decoration is based on herringbone threaded with a fine cord. I then tucked rose buds in the valleys of the herringbone. The buds are twisted chain stitch worked in silk ribbon. Beads secured with a seed bead  added the final touch.


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.




I have released the block patterns and stitch ideas for non commercial use. However, you must attribute the work to me, and link back to this blog. You may not take whole articles from this series and reprint them online, as that is not in the spirit of sharing.
