Another Fans seam

Here is another seam of fans on my CQ kimono. This time I made them bigger and don't quite like the effect as much as before. It's amazing how you can stitch the same seam you did before and even use the same type of threads, but the stitches can streeeetch or shrink and you hardly notice it until you look at it later.

The lower fabric is very busy, so it was hard to figure out what would show up on it. It is a beautiful paisley, though, and belonged to my mother, so there is no way I would not include it. Happy stitching, everyone!

Hi Lin. I love the this seam treatment. It clearly demonstrates how many options there are when you use silk ribbon! I'm in a Christmas round robin and as I examined it, I couldn't help but wonder how it would look in green and red--Christmas colors. I may try it... I think you did a fine job and the cameo is to die for!!

Hi Brenda,
Thanks for your comment. If you want to see the first fan seam treatment I did, you can click on my August archives and scroll down about halfway to Aug 22. The fans are smaller and I like the way it came out better. Happy stitching...
