It's the middle of the week. Again?

Want a little look at what I spent some time on today?   First there was some piecing,  next came basting
then some free motion quilting.  Variegated thread is always fun to play with!

Soon it was time to shake out the button box for another  idea!
 A dab of washable glue to temporarily hold each button, before I  machine stitched them into place made things much easier.
Whew.  That was a lot of buttons to stitch!

  2. This is looking lovely and interesting. Stitching buttons down with the machine is something I’ve never done.

  4. this will be a truly "heritage" quilt. I can just see some little girl, a hundred years hence, running her hands over the buttons. Inspired!
