A Muted Seam Treatment – Detail 380 August 17th, 2007

A lot of the stitching that I do on a crazy quilt block is there to stand out and be seen but sometimes the seams can get congested and the overall composition of the block is better if some muted seams treatments, that will blend into the background, are used…

As well as 2 seams it intersects with, this seam is near the edge of the block and a fancy seam would not only have made the existeing seams look congested but would have looked cramped on the side of the block…by doing the Twisted Chain Stitches in a neutral coloured thread the seam is down played so that it complements instead of competing with those existing seams.

    I wish I could see more of this block so that I could see what you mean about the possibility of congestion.

    Even toned down, it’s an interesting seam. Every piece nees quieter spots, I think. I could surely use your advice tonight on a RR seam. =)
