This hand embroidered seam detail on block 80 of my I dropped the button Box Crazy Quilt.
Crazy Quilt detail 528 is of some hand dyed red lace. since it was set against a black background I did not need to do too much with it. using a rayon thread I attached the lace with detached chain stitch, oyster chain stitch and straight stitches.
The Palace guard charm was a little item I collected on a trip to London. It balances the charm of the london bus which is in the top right hand corner of the block.
This article is part of a series that highlight the hand embroidered seams and Crazy Quilt details on the quilt blocks that make up my crazy quilt I dropped the button box. For a free pattern of the block visit the web page about block 80.
