The blocks were pieced together a few days ago, and the borders were added. This has been a super project to make, and is made with a combination of techniques - machine piecing, hand embroidery and hand applique. This has been layered up on a piece of cotton wadding, and is all ready for machine quilting, as soon as I find the right backing fabric! These hand painted wooden buttons have just been laid on the quilt top for the photograph, they'll be stitched in place once the quilting has been completed. The pattern Christmas Fun is by the Australian designer Lynette Anderson Designs, and was bought with the set of wooden buttons, online just after Christmas from Patchwork Chicks, here in the UK.
