French button countdown 114 down - 2 to go

I have almost finished sewing the buttons onto my French Collection quilt. Here are some more of the blocks.

Pont d'eglise - Church bridge


Cafe


Grapes

Shutters
Lavender


Patisserie


Centreville - village centre

I have loved every part of the process of making this quilt... Even though sewing the buttons on is time-consuming, what better way is there to appreciate each one in it's detail?

Hi Lorraine,
I have been watching these stitcheries with great interest. I've ordered my BOM of the 1950s series and am so looking forward to creating them. The quilting even looks within my limitations!
Cheers,
Fay

Thanks Fay, it seems to be all I have done lately! But, why would I want to do anything else with this so close to finishing?

I need to put a label on.

Glad you're liking my tourist-eye view of Bendigo.
