In this case most of this wasn't my work but I did have the chance to finish this project and put it together. It is more scrappy than my sister would have chosen to finish this quilt off so I hope she will like it. The blocks came together well and it is just a fun little quilt.
I have the binding machine sewn to the edges all ready for her to hand stitch in place. I hate to mail quilts but since she lives in Nevada I just may have to do that. I have both her quilts all ready for her and even though it took a few months. They are done!
I quilted my table runner/table topper project. As I said before they are gifts for friends as a thank you for helping me with the wedding. I hope they like them. I detail quilted the kitchens and kettles and then stippled the rest. I was deciding on what button to top the kettles.
I like wading through my button jars. The buttons are fun to play with and position over the kettles while I stand back to decide what is best. I love the fabrics in this little quilt.
Oops that button looks like I got it a little off center. I went with a plain blue. It was hard to decide.
I went with a little white button on this one because the red buttons just seemed to blend in too much.
I saved the red for this kettle on the square table topper (to fit a round table). I wish I had an apple button but this red round button works.
And so here is half the finish on the table runner.
And the other half. I think the yellow makes the whole thing rather story book illustration-like.
And here is the finish on the table topper. It has upside down cottages so when you are at the other side of the table there is still something to look at.
