Buttonwood is almost a wrap....pun intended! I got her off the quilting machine last night after a full day of quilting feathers, crosshatching and lots of ditching. It was worth every minute of time and effort. The cable and feathers aren't perfect, but close enough as in hand grenades and horseshoes.
I'll take a picture of the whole quilt, and nothing but the quilt after I get the binding on her. The log walls at the cabin will make a nice backdrop for the pattern cover. Mr. Joe and I will have a mini-photo shoot during the week for Miss Buttonwood. Hopefully we can get her good side and she'll smile extra nice for the camera! I'm smiling because this is going to be finish #2 this year.
I intentionally didn't quilt the basket part of the quilt so it would look like the little baskets were full. Full of what? I don't know, I just wanted to make them look puffy and they do.
Binding is at the top of my list this week. What's on your list? Do you make a list each day? I would be lost without my list of things I want to accomplish each and every day. I have a daily list and a weekly list for bigger projects that I know will take a long time. What I don't finish, goes to the top of my list the following day. Sometimes I put easy things on my list, just to have the satisfaction of being able to cross something off. Three cheers to crossing off a major item on my list today!
