Fancy Seam Designs #4

The Fancy Seam Designs Stitch-a-long  is a challenge to stitch all 500 seams within Crazy Quilting - Volume III: Fancy Seam Designs, by Kathy Seaman Shaw (available at

Today is Seam #4 (which is on Page 8, last seam on that page).

Hope you enjoy stitching this seam!

This seam includes some long Stab Stitches with silk ribbon, as well as knot/gathered roses (also know as Fargo Roses).

I have used dark blue 4mm silk ribbon for the roses, 7mm light purple silk ribbon for the Stab Stitches; Green perle cotton sz 8 for the leaves of the roses and the stab stitches; a trio of sz 15 pink metallic beads finishes out the ribbon stab stitches; and the sequins are 5mm blue round and 4mm clear slightly cupped with seed beads to hold them in place; embroider is in blue perle size 8. 

You can also see the seams stitched by others if you are a member of the Facebook Group, Modern Crazyquilt Seams here.

That's a pretty one. I like the look of Fargo roses, and a friend from New Zealand had explained how to make them. I haven't done it in a while, though. I'll have to see if I can remember!
