Detail 492 is actually a seam covered in vintage cotton lace that I have then decorated further with long tail chain stitches, French knots, Fly stitch, detached chain stitches and seed beads. I used cotton perle #5 (the white thread) , #8 (the tan thread) and #12 (the pink thread)
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 in serie investigate the Crazy Quilt details category.
