I made a scrappy backing for Buttonwood and loaded it on the machine yesterday and started quilting.
I decided not to quilt the cable and feather in the border. Instead I went with more of a scalloped look.
There is a lot of stitching in the ditch on this quilt which takes me quite a bit of time to work my way around the block. I'm going to sew the buttons to the center of the yo-yo's after I finish the quilting....I hope that isn't going to be too hard to get through all of the layers. I guess I'll be finding out!
I'll be machine quilting and doing some machine piecing today. I also need to get back to October Magic and prepare more pieces for applique. My to-do list is starting to grow again. This quilt is at the top of my list so I can have it on display by Memorial Day. I'd better sign off and stop chatting with you so I can start meeting my goals. Get out those lists today and start checking some items off.....you'll be glad you did.
