Season's Baskets Lizzie Kate

Finished April 18, 2012
With Buttons Attached

The pictures above are after all the stitching was finished.
I took it back to the laundry room sink and partially filled the sink
and added a big teaspoon of Quilt Wash.  Rinsed it and took it to
my sewing room where I pressed it.  Then I went and added the
buttons.  I wasn't sure I liked them but my husband really liked the
buttons and said they added deminison so I sewed them on. 
Today I took it to Michael's with
my 60% +15% off coupon and left it to be framed.  My friend
JoAnn went with me and we picked the frame together.  I couldn't
believe that the frame we both picked was a reddish color.  I can't
explain the color but it's not red red.  I guess it's a brownish red.
It's going to look great.  Its suppose to be ready May 2nd.  I'll
post pictures again with its finished. 


  1. I love this!!! Would you say you frame is a cherry-wood color? 'Cause that's what I'm picturing in my head.

  2. I'm not sure. Its really a neat frame though. It could be cherry wood but more red to it. They have a frame at Michael's thats got oak leaves and acorns on it. I just love it and I have to find something to stitch so I can get it framed with it. By the time I do they will probably discontinue it.

  3. It's really pretty. Congrats on the finish. I think the buttons add a nice touch too. Looking forward to seeing it framed.
