Today I would like to share a detail on block 73 of the I Dropped the Button Box Crazy Quilt. If you click on the thumbnail you will be taken to a free pattern of the block and information about the fabrics I used when I made up the block.
The first is a little detail is a simple little seam treatment for crazy quilting. I have worked 2 lines of offset running stitches then laced them with a hand dyed chenille thread. Along the edge of one side i used straight stitches topped with seed beads.
This article is part of a regular series which illustrates the hand embroidered seams, embellishments and decorations on my crazy quilt I dropped the button box. If you want to read more articles like this look under Crazy Quilt details category
