Crazy Quilt Seam Detail 537

Crazy quilt block 82

This seam embellishment is found on block 82 of my I dropped the button Box Crazy Quilt. It is probably a favourite of many crazy quilters. It is made up of  feather stitch worked in cotton perle #5 thread.

I added some small blue beads to the end of each arm before adding the little dragonfly charm. It is a very simple seam decoration and easy for peopel who are just starting out on crazy quilting.

  1. The good thing about adding beads after stitching the main embroidery is done is that the beads sit tight. If this had been a Beaded Feather Stitch the small blue beads would have slid up and down the legs of the feathers, wouldn’t they? Beautiful colour mix.
