This hand embroidered detail is a seam on block 78. If you click on the thumbnail of the block you will see a larger version.
This detail is what I call a button and bead trail as I have stitched on buttons and beads as if they had spilt over the block. They are fun but time consuming to do!
I usually start with the buttons and add the smaller beads around the edges of them.
The Crazy Quilt details series of articles each highlight the hand embroidered seams and embellishments on the blocks that make up my crazy quilt I dropped the button box. I hope the eye candy and details give you ideas fro your own crazy quilting projects.
