Briefly, here is an explanation of Build a Seam. Every Sunday I'm going to post a picture of the basic bare bones of a seam treatment, and we have a week to decide on and complete whatever other stitches and embellishments are needed to make it a complete - and gorgeous! - seam treatment. I am looking forward to training myself to see beyond the basic herringbone or cretan stitch I like to fall back on, and to learn to make more passes across the seam adding more stitches, beads. SRE, etc. This is all happening on the Crazy Quilting International Novice site and I am going to post it here as well in case anyone else would like to play along. If you would like to share please post a comment with a link to your blog or wherever we can find the picture. I would love to post some pictures of finished seams here. Thanks!
This is the framework for week one - an intertwining row of scallops or half circles done in chain stitch. I think there is some room here to work! I hope someone else will play along!
