crazy quilt hand embroidered seam detail

Seam decoration on crazy quilt block:

This seam is found on crazy quilt block 50. It  is threaded arrow stitch. I threaded the stitch with a hand dyed knitting ribbon then added beads in the valleys of the pattern. On the hills I added a detached chain stitch worked in a metalic thread.


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.
