Here it is Tuesday again and time for another seam embellishment. The seam I have this week is a neat one for a curved seam. This seam was done on top of a very shiny brocade fabric and I hope you can see the details.
It's a butterfly made from detached chain stitches and straight stitches. Done in two colors and with a larger thread then regular DMC floss, it makes a nice seam treatment. For the butterfly body, you could also substitute a bugle bead. The top detached chain stitches are larger then the bottom ones. You could do satin stitches inside the "wings" or even add some beads. This is a nice big embellishment that would certainly fill in lots of room on a block.
That's 10 seam treatments and I think that will be the end of the weekly seam embellishments for a while. Hopefully warmer weather will be here soon (like right now!) and I have lots and lots of yard work to do.
I hope you have enjoyed looking at the different stitches and that it's helped some of you think about your own CQ work and seam treatments.
