This is a detail (469)of an embellished seam on block 70 of the I dropped the button box Quilt.
I used a stitch called Rosette of Thorns and worked in in hand dyed cotton perle #5 thread. It was another simple hand embroidery treatment because it sat next to a rather dominating cluster of vintage buttons which is detail #470
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
