This seam is on block 69 of the I dropped the button box Quilt. I created it by working feather stitch using ray ribbon floss which had been hand dyed. The tones are a soft warm apricot with sat with the colours in the fabrics on the crazy quilt block. I then added a small seed beads.
In the case of this seam, I was stitching on quite thick velvet fabric so I chose a stitch that I could slide under the fabric between the layers, rather than have to stab stitch through two layers which made it easier to stitch. If you want see the block and get the pattern for block 69 you can see it here
