Crazy Quilt Seam Detail 471 and 472

crazy quilt block 71Today I would like to share another crazy quilt seam embellishment which is on  block 71 of the I dropped the button box Quilt. As a little reminder this is what the block looks like. The thumbnail will take you to the block.

One of the trims added to this block is a hand dyed vintage ribbon which I secured with embroidery. Using rayon embroidery thread I worked 3 detached chain stitches arranged in a fan pattern and at the base of each I further decorated them with beads.
