Crazy Quilt Seam Detail 520

crazy quilt block 79

This hand embroidered detail is a seam on block 79 on my I Dropped the Button Box Quilt

This seam is covered with a commercial braid that is about half an inch wide. I stitched it to the block then along each edge I worked a series of straight stitches in sets of two arranged  in V formation. I then laced a knitting yarn through the V shaped stitches. I completed the embellishment with black seed beads placed on top of the V stitches. It looks as if the knitting yarn is laced around the seed beads but it is just a trick. So I was doing a sneaky sharon stitch. I hope it gives you a few ideas to work with.
