This seam is to be found on block 69 of the I dropped the button box Quilt. I stitched down 3 copper coloured beads and added two detached chain stitches to the base. I used stranded cotton floss.

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.

There is always so much to see on your seam details. Thank you for all the inspiration.
