Crazy Quilt Seam Detail 464

crazy quilt block embroidery seam detailThis seam is on block 69 of the I dropped the button box Quilt. I covered it with a piece of hand dyed lace and cluster of buttons. As I said when I introduced block 69 , in this cluster of buttons there  is an unusual vintage souvenir made from a pressed penny.  Slouch hat pennies are an example of soldiers craft and the older ones  are now collectors pieces.
