Crazy Quilt Seam Detail 468

Crazy quilt seam embellishment detailThis crazy quilt seam embellishment is part of block 70 of the I dropped the button box Quilt.

Since this seam is covered with antique lace I did not want to it dominate too much  with a heavy handed approach to embroidery as the lace is lovely enough to sit and on its own. So along the edge of the seam I tacked it down into place and then  I added seed beads as the base of 3 Detached chain stitches.

This is part of a regular series which illustrates the hand embroidered seams, embellishments and decorations on my crazy quilt I dropped the button box. All articles in this series can be found under Crazy Quilt details
