Build a Seam - Week 8

First of all, just a reminder of how the Build a Seam Challenge works. This is a challenge that I am doing on the CQI Novice Site and I am happy to share it here too. Each week a simple seam or framework is posted and the challenge is to see what else you can add to it to make it pleasing to you as a complete seam treatment. We are now in the eighth week but anyone is welcome to join in at any time for as long as you want, to challenge yourself with all of the seams or as many as you like. The block I did this one on is getting a little crowded so you will need to ignore the key charms and attached tassel as well as the double cretan seam down below. What we are looking at this week is the chain stitch zigzag on the blue & pink seam. You can do this either in chain stitch as I have or stem stitch or whatever you would like. The challenge is so see what you can add to this very angular seam to make it your own. Have a good week & have fun!
