I've spent several hours over the last few days, preparing fabric pieces to make appliques for a quilt. There is SO much prep work - once I start sewing I think it will go together quickly and then I know it will all have been worth the effort.
I started this Kim Diehl design years ago and gave up on it - but I've pulled it back out again and I'm determined that I will at least get the top pieced!
I had lunch with hubby yesterday. As I was walking down the hall of the courthouse where he works, I came across this bit of wall art that caught my attention - a quilt - covered in buttons. It really wasn't made very well - no batting - no precision piecing - and all the buttons were adhered with hot glue. But it added a bit of color to the hallway and that's always nice, huh?
