Well here it is, my final project for 2020, this quilt is called Peace and Joy, and was the 2020 mystery button club quilt by Lynette Anderson designs. I'd signed up for this with Coast & Country Crafts and Quilts, based in Cornwall here in the UK, and each month I received a pattern along with a hand painted wooden button...
...now the quilt has been completed (I machine quilted this one very simply) and the binding has been added, the hand painted wooden buttons are stitched in place with embroidery thread...
...I'd been doodling some ideas for the quilt label, and try to incorporate the theme from the front of the quilt on the label. The Christmas tree is a design from one of the blocks, and a circular wreath seemed very appropriate. I used a few variegated Valdani threads for the hand embroidery, in the same colours that were used on the quilt.
...I'm getting short of quilt hangers, so I've ordered one with a festive theme from Coast & Country Crafts and Quilts, so that this quilt will be able to be displayed for Christmas 2021.
