Dad’s block on mum’s quilt _detail 116 January 22nd, 2007

colonial knots to hold on braid

For this seam I used a stripe from a piece of quilters cotton. The Colonial Knots decorate the edge at the same time as stitching it on. Bring the needle up through the edge of the fabric, form the knot and put the needle down beside the fabric so that the knot sits beside the fabric, this is a nice and very easy way to stitch braids and ribbons onto your crazy quilts.

The last seam on this block is a double row of herringbone stitch.

And this is the finished block, with a photo of my dad.
