Back again. I finished quilting this block along with a couple of others in the row. I'm not breaking any quilting speed limits on the blocks in this quilt. I'm constantly changing thread color and tying off the loose ends.
This whole quilt started out as my Nostalgic Christmas pillow pattern. I liked the block so much, I couldn't stop making them. I added some sashings, posts, a wide border and before I knew it, I had a Christmas quilt.
Speaking of loose ends.......to break up the quilting monotony, I decided to sew some of the yo-yo's on Toyland. I found just the perfect snowflake button to attach them to the quilt. This picture show a little bit of the yo-yo's and a lot of the quilting.
The little yo-yo's add so much to the overall design. The bottom row looks naked without them! I'll get back to my machine quilting now and save the last six yo-yo's for latter on when I need a nice break and can sit down for a few minutes. If I remember, I'll take a close-up of the snowflake buttons.
