I got the quilt for our scout leader yesterday that needs to be quilted.
Normally I would hand quilt the whole thing....but, in the interest of time, was thinking more along these lines.
First a description of the quilt.
Each of the girls in the Brownie troop did a self portrait on a 12x12 piece of muslin. G'ma then sewed all together, using 2 inch squares as a border around each girl. at the intersection is the "brownie brown" square. I was thinking of tying the quilt, and then just embellishing, but then thought a button at each intersecion would give it more stablity rather than tying?? Thoughts? I still will hand embelish, but this will also be a patch quilt for her as well... Thinking too that the girls could learn to sew on a button, altho I don't think that's a brownie requirement, but sure is a life skill requirement!!!
Also figures, the brown I have is about 2 shades to dark for the quilting...ACK...
