The Buttoned Down Quilt


All quilted and with about half the buttons it's going to have -- this is the quilt I called "the Lemonade Quilt" two or three weeks ago. Now it's going to be called "the Buttoned Down Quilt because it will have quite a lot of buttons on the central part. They are shirt buttons, not fancy ones and at the moment I need some blue ones so it might not be completely finished for a while.

I loved watching how quilting it made it so much quilt-ier, and blended some of the squares together. Of course the texture has changed which is also satisfying. I'm pleased with this quilt, I think I'll take it to show and tell in the next guild meeting to show what can happen to a handful of samples from the share table. The two photos look rather different but it's just different light, different places in the apartment.

This is perfect! I started a beginners quilt class with no idea how I would quilt it (I don't have a longarm), and this is just the thing to make it special. Thanks for sharing :)
