Well the top is finished. I had not done machine buttonhole for about 5 years and discovered that it is like riding a bike – something that you never forget. I thoroughly enjoyed making this quilt. The buttonhole is very fine and I used matching cotton threads. I am waiting on delivery of the backing fabric to machine quilt. The sashings do not match as I thought that the fabric was so busy that it did not really matter.
Currently I am working on Pie in the Sky a Kim Diehl Quilt. No 2 son needs a new quilt for his bed. The pattern is a star in a shoofly and is fun to make. When I have made a few more I will take some photos. I also need to make a quilt for No 1 son. Have the fabric and am making a combination pattern. A bit from here and a bit from there. Not started yet but I am going to try doing a bit of project a week with every week a different one. Could come unstuck but it is worth a try. I have not given up on the Nearly Insane and that is one of the weekly projects.
Stay Tune Cheers Lynne
