Crazy Quilt Seam Detail 455

crazy quilt block embroidery seam detailThis seam is to be found on block 68 of the I dropped the button box Quilt. I first covered the seam in some lace. It is is a modern nylon lace and I felt the colour went with the block. I threaded  a rayon ribbon floss outlining parts of pattern. I then added oyster stitches along the bottom. The orange fly stitches secured with a bullion are also rayon ribbon floss.

I added the beads and buttons after all hand embroidery was done
