Today I would like to share a detail on block 76 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.
This detail is a seam covered with hand dyed lace that was first tacked tot he block then I added a line of Palestrina stitches along the base. I arranged 3 detached chain stitches in a little fan formation and added french knots and seed beads. The embroidery is done in # 5 perle cotton.
This article is part of a series highlighting the hand embroidered seams, embellishments and decorations on my crazy quilt I dropped the button box. If you want to read more articles in series investigate the Crazy Quilt details category.
