Crazy Quilt Seam Detail 469 and 470

Crazy quilt seam embellishment detailThis 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

  1. G’day Sharon,
    You came to mind this morning when I was taking stock of my bead collection… I remember collecting them with such zealous when I first became enchanted with crazy patchwork… I must admit to having an eclectic mix… Now my question is – how do you store them? I know you are famous for your bead soup but I wondered how you stored the rest of them by colour, type, material, composition, size… Is it the same rule for your button collection too…
    Thanks too for your support re my employment situation… There may be some light on the horizon but I the question I have to ask myself do I want to return to work full time as that is what the position is offering… I have a couple of days to think about it before I have to give my answer… That is probably what led me to looking at my bead stash if truth be known – putting off the hard stuff… 🙂
