Angel Seam

Happy Sunday!

An angel seam was added to the crazy quilt stocking 
I am making for my son.

Working from left to right, I angled buttonhole stitches to make triangles for the angel bodies.

Pairs of detached chain stitches were added 
at the top of the triangles to create wings.

French knots were placed between the wings for the heads.

This is one of my favorite seams to add to Christmas crazy quilts.
It was inspired by a seam in An Encyclopedia of Crazy Quilt Stitches and Motifs by Linda Causee.

Wishing you a fantastic week!

This is day 3 in the 31 Day Blog Writing Challenge
