crazy quilt detail of braid

This seam on block 56 of the I dropped the button box quilt was covered with braid.  I  then added detached chain stitches that have been worked using two strands of rayon thread and one strand of metallic blending thread.

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.
