Machine Quilting Buttonwood

Hello Everyone,

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'll be glad you did. 

As always,



  1. Just perfectly stunning quilting !!!!

  2. I always love feathers, but the way you've quilted the border here is wonderful. I love the scalloped effect.
