Buhl Bushong Border 1

I actually have no clue where the name of this quilt comes from, only that Mary pressured me to indulge! LOL (She didn't really have to pressure too hard) 
I didn't have to look too far for the name of the quilt- terrific history of the quilt HERE.

I am finally done with my first border.





Here is the amazing quilt, which the pattern is being published by Virginia Quilt Museum. You can see for yourself at the link HERE.

I am behind, but have ordered red for the points and will start on the left border soon. 


On another note: 
I'm considering doing a Christmas blog hop.  If you have a blog and would like to participate, I'm gathering ideas and bloggers! Email me! ldej@crestviewcable.com

We got more snow Saturday night! I think it's done for now.

Have a fantastic week!

  3. That is one gorgeous quilt! Is that needle turning? Someday I would like to learn that but I need to get other skills under my belt first. I've only made a few simple quilts so far.

  9. Oh my goodness, your applique is looking so amazing! Love it. Very inspiring. I adore applique borders and often think they are underappreciated.:)
