Another TAST Detached Chain – detail 113 January 19th, 2007

Embroidering a crazy quilt patchEmbroidering on the patches is something that I have not done very often but always like it when I see it, which I did last night on Mary’s block where she had scattered stars across a patch, I am doing stars on the brown patch but got side tracked by thinking about detached Chain stitch, Sharon’sTAST stitch for this week…I used 2 detached chains and a colonial knot to create a small flower which I scattered randomly on the patch. I put one flower in the next patch across, it gives the hint that the flowers are embroidered and not a part of the fabric but more importantly it moves the eye around, further disguising the long line of seam that I had down the middle of the block.
