Today I would like to show you how I deal with block “problem” areas. I generally sew my crazy quilt blocks in a somewhat random fashion using the flip and sew method. Prior to embellishing I noted the rather straight section which is peeking through. I had this rather large applique butterfly in my drawer, likely picked up at the thrift store which I felt would work perfectly to cover up this area. I kept it simple by simply adding a few French knots. I repeated some French knots above this to fill in the area and added a few flower beads.
The seam treatment on the left is a base of feather stitch. I added detached chain stitches, beads and imperfect bullions as flower buds.
That’s it! Have a great weekend.
