There were only 2 seams left on block 3 for my Crazy White quilt. I started with TAST stitch 128: interlaced up and down buttonhole stitch. The thread is cotton a broder.
The last seam didn’t want any stitches, it wanted a button and bead trail. I’m sure this was inspired by the beautiful examples from Sharon here and here!
After adding beads to the chained feather and buttons at the Portuguese stem stitch
I attached this pretty flower ring with cotton a broder, just straight stitches and French knots. This was part of a necklace, I bought it to use the pretty parts for my CQ!
Then it was time to damp stretch my finished block, but I had used wooden buttons and beads. So I covered my bead and button trail with plastic, which I removed after spraying the water.
Block 3 is finished, it was the last of the 4 blocks I prepared in February 2012!
Just click the photo to take a closer look at my block.
