My Blog List
I finally worked out the design of the quilt top after changing my mind a few times, and it includes this appliqued bird which I quilted on with a layer of batting underneath it.
So my question is this.. should I give the bird an eye?
Here he is without an eye..
There's a little strip of batting under the branches, too. The bird is made out of "crumbs" left over from another part of the quilt.
So I got out my grandmother's buttons..
and started searching through.. ended up dumping them out so I could see better, and look what I found?
I like the first button but would move it a tiny little bit more to the front.
But I second the idea with embroydery too. Somehow I always catch some hair in buttons on sofapillows *ouch* and therefore avoid them on sofaquilts, too. Maybe that´s just me and I´m clumsy. :)
You've probably already decided, Kelli, but I thought I'd stop by and give my opinion, too. I like the little bitty brown button. It seems just perfect to me. At first I thought, "Oh, not buttons. Use embroidery floss." But then I saw your buttons. Yeh, that little brown one works great. He's a beautiful little bird with all his fine scrappy "feathers."
