Working on, on wednesday

I have completed the quilt top I started sewing up yesterday. It is going to be a quilt for a soldier and is made from only 3 shirts. I had to be really careful how I cut them but managed it with only one long skinny piece that needed joining. I have 3 pockets left which I will include in the pieced backing.

I am happy because I make a contribution to the cause, Big Tick, I had set myself a challenge of making a Heros quilt so another Tick, and I get to keep the buttons, Tick.

Stupid me! I have just realised that if I put blocks of shirt pockets into a pieced backing and then quilt it I am going to render the pockets useless cos they will be stitched up. What a Muppet, sigh, back to the drawing board.

Did I tell you I love buttons? Look at this blog of loveliness I spent hours looking at lovely images just immersed in love of buttons.

Make yourself a cuppa and enjoy.

Till next time

The Bonkers about buttons is probably aptly titled! (But I enjoyed my cuppa and eye candy!)
