Crazy Quilt Seam Detail 517

Crazy quilt block 78

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.

This hand embroidered detail is a seam on block 78. This seam decoration is made up of some cotton cutwork lace that cut off the edge of an old petty coat found at a second hand charity shop.
