Encrusted Crazy Quilting 9

In the Flickr TAST-group I saw some lovely flowers here and here. They were the inspiration for a floral spray on my 10 x 10 inch crazy block. I made the slipped detached chain flowers with perle 5 and I added a 2 mm bead. Then I made a fly stitch at the bottom of the flower and added an extra line in the same way as the slipped detached chain flower, but closer together. I used the long tail of the fly stitch as a base for the thorn stitch.This is a sneak peek of the floral spray on the bottom right corner of my block.

  1. Your slipped cain stitch is nice Annet and I like the idea of the knot in the centre of the chain.

    BTW I worked your idea of trellis on buttonhole cup stitch..it came very nice and the stitch sits perfect on the BH edges..I am thinking stitch on Lotus leaves..Thank you Annet for the nice idea..
