January CQJP 2018 - 2 Basic Seams


CQJP 2018 January Block Seam 1
The first seam was embellished with black size 8 perle cotton and a Chevron Stitch.
This seam will be built up with more embellishment later.


To keep my stitches even, I placed one of Sharon B.'s Crazy Quilting Templates (from Set 1) along the seamline and used a pencil to lightly mark the upper-most and lowest points.


CQJP 2018 January Block Seam 2
Using the same perle cotton, the second seam was embellished with a feather stitch. More embellishement will be added to this seam after I cover the applique edges of the heart with stitching.

Thank you for visiting!
Renee



Notes:
CQJP 2018 = Crazy Quilt Journal Project 2018. It is a challenge to embellish one crazy quilt block a month. Find the CQJP blog here.

Disclaimer: 
I recieved my CQ Stencils from Sharon B. in return for an honest review. I really enjoy using these stencils and look forward to creating more with them this year!

Very pretty beginning! Your stitching on the feather is very well-spaced, too.
