I finally finished the quilting on my vest at around 11 pm last night. I had so much fun doing this. Normally I don’t like to hand quilt – probably because I have taken on huge jobs – like a single bed quilt and large wall hanging – and they become a chore rather than a pleasure. This vest was definately in the pleasure category.
The back – quilted and buttons attached.
Close up of bottom of the vest. The stars were needed to break up the huge line of black and grey that I thought would work – but didn’t really…..at least it didn’t with my rear end.
The Prairie points needed some buttons to jazz them up a bit.
Front of Vest
I had to add some butterfly buttons that were given to me by a friend. Thanks Norma…they were just what was needed.
Even these Prairie Points needed decorating.
The other front side.
Beautiful Leaf Buttons also from Norma. How could I not use them – loving my garden as I do.
The lining is cut out – now I just have to get some more black to make the binding and I can sew it all together.
