Another section of Block #7 in my CRAZY QUILTING project – Black Butterflies. I have mentioned previously that I generally work on one medium size crazy quilt project annually. This year I chose a completely different colour combination from last year in a bold primary colour palette. You can find all the other posts pertaining to this project under “Black Butterflies” in the right sidebar under Categories.
I had mentioned in my previous posts that I planned to do some button clusters on each of my blocks as I have a rather large collection of vintage buttons. So, here is my cluster. I always vary the sizes of the buttons and here I have added a sequin leaf and a leaf charm. The top area looked a bit bare so I added a few scattered French knots to both the top and bottom.
I picked up the metal flowers in the top years ago so added a few of these to the seam treatment at the top.
The bottom seam treatment consists of a zig zag base in perle cotton with pistil stitches in a silk. I added red heart brads in between.
More in coming weeks….
