For the last couple of weeks, I worked on the Winter Memories Block of the Month quilt. I stitched blocks 7 & 8 and started the embroidery detail. In addition to the embroidery, there are also buttons and beads to add fun and texture. I am reluctant to sew on the buttons and beads until the quilting is complete.
Pros for adding the buttons and beads now — the back will be smooth.
Pros for adding after quilting — they won’t get in the way of the needle and walking foot.
What does everyone else do?
