With this seam I first embroidered a row of herringbone. I used a hand dyed silk thread. I next laced the herringbone with rayon ribbon floss. The beads were vintage beads fare taken from a necklace found in a garage sale. I pulled the string of beads apart and these had an interesting texture to them. This seam is on block 67 of the I dropped the button box Quilt.
What is the story?
This regular series illustrates the hand embroidered seams, embellishments and decorations on my crazy quilt I dropped the button box. Links to each block is listed on the CQ details FAQ page.
You are so clever! I love the lacing of the herringbone stitch. I definitely have to try this!
