I have been working on this cathedral windows mini quilt since before we went to New York (Mid September 2018). It was supposed to just be a quick little project to make before our holiday because I didn’t have time to start a new big quilt project. And I also wanted to use the samples from my Tropical Leaves Spoonflower designs for an actual project.
Oh by the way! I just remembered: Spoonflower have free shipping worldwide at the moment, but it ends tomorrow at 11:59 p.m. EST (whatever time that is in your timezone – for the UK that’s 4:59 a.m. on Saturday. Timezones, it’s like time travel!) so if you’ve had your eye on some designs on on Spoonflower, now may be the time to strike. :-)
Well, it’s six+ months later and it’s still not finished! Actually, I thought I was done with it, apart from a hanging sleeve on the back. But I decided that I couldn’t live with the wonky joins of the squares, see picture at the top. So wonky. And I’m usually pretty easy going when it comes to things not being ‘perfect’. So I added an extra task to the project: to sew on buttons. Which is a common thing in cathedral window quilts/cushion covers and I guess now I know why, the buttons cover all manner of wonky sins. :-D
I was a little bit skeptical about using buttons in lots of colours, I pondered using all white, but I think the colourful buttons add an extra something to the quilt.
Hopefully, this ‘quick’ project will be done very soon, buttons and hanging sleeve and all.
Pretty colours and the coloured buttons do add an extra life. Lovely!
Thank you, Lyn! :-)
