This series highlights the hand embroidered seams, embellishments and decorations on my crazy quilt I dropped the button box. For a free pattern of the block and information about the fabrics I used when I made up the block click on the block thumbnail.
This is a hand embroidered detail of a seam on block 77.
I covered a seam with hand dyed vintage lace and then picked out parts of the pattern in french knots. To do this I used 2 strands of cotton floss. I use a dark blue perle # 12 thread to outline the lace and parts of the rose motifs in back stitch.
