Build A Seam Week 1

In our CQINovice group we are doing a weekly challenge called Build A Seam. Kerry started us off doing circles in a chain stitch, then we take and build on this seam. First I done the circles in chain stitch.

Then I added straight stitch to give it a thorny look.

Then I added bullion for the roses, fly stitch , and feather stitch. I will probably add beads or maybe some bullions on the feather stitching but I have the seam above it to do before I add those on. Looking forward to next weeks stitches.

This is looking good, is it a crazy quilt?

What a great class to do...to build up a seam like that.
Seams are my weakest areas of CQ and I love the build up on this one.
I am stuck on a Christmas round robin one as the lady used all patterned Christmas fabrics and it is so so hard to decorate.

Thank you Karen,,yes it is a cq block of mine that I decided to do these stitches on.

Thank you Ozjane,,it can be difficult to do what you would like on a patch if it is to busy. I hope you find something that will work for you.
