to go to the tutorial for that week:)
All of the tutorials will remain
here on my blog
so no worries if you are behind
or you haven't even started yet:)
This week is all about
showing you my finished quilt.
I hung it on my studio wall and took
SEVERAL photos of each section
that are close up and personal:)
I did this so that you can see the
beautiful quilting that my friend
and quilter Juli Stubbs did!
She is just so amazing:)
If you have never put ric-rac
in a binding before...
or if you want to know exactly
how I do my binding...
for my step by step tutorial
that I did several years back.
I have been doing this same method
for years and it's my favorite:)
I hope my photos will help you
when it comes time to quilt your own Vintage Housewife Quilt....
or any of my other applique quilts as well!
I sewed all of my buttons on
beforehand and Juli went around them.
When you decide to put your buttons on
is completely up to you
and/or your quilter:)
I can't remember if I showed you

projects were on display in the
Riley Blake Designs booth.
