This detail is a seam of hand embroidery found on block 82 of my I dropped the button Box Crazy Quilt.
Chevron stitch is a popular basic stitch for crazy quilters which is easily worked and lends itself to lots of variation. This is double row of chevron stitch worked in two colours using a cotton perle#5 thread. I then topped it off with detached chain and straight stitches arranged with the aid of a bead to look like little flowers. These were worked in perle #8.
