FQ Challenge

Well, after three days of embroidery work and embellishment, this is where my FQ Challenge is at.  What a huge difference it makes to my top.

Some time ago, I purchased a large package of assorted buttons and inside were all these small red buttons.  So perfect for this project.

Have a great day!

I always love how embellishments can take something from pretty to WOW! This is a great block - I love your yo-yo flowers!

The details in this little quilt top really do make it pop! Great use of the buttons.
