This is a very simple seam treatment and probably one of my favourites which is feather stitch. I worked in cotton perle thread #5 along one of the middle seams on the block. The patch the seam runs alongside is a patch of cotton that has been covered with vintage lace. I tucked the lace into seam as I pieced the block. The butterfly is hand carved from China.
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.
