Buhl Bushong Border Update

I am sharing progress on one of my Buhl Bushong borders.  I am enjoying selecting the flower fabrics.  The two flowers on the left are new and the yellow flower on the right is new.  I am participating in a sew-along being headed up by Doreen Johnson for the Virginia Quilt Museum.




 I am participating in a sew-along being headed up by Doreen Johnson for the Virginia Quilt Museum.   I will share a picture below of the antique quilt the pattern set is made from.


The quilt looks good in many different color combos and styles of fabric.  There is a Facebook group where the participants share their progress, ask questions, etc.  There is still time for you to join in or add the pattern set to you library.  Here is a link if you would like to look at the information.  http://www.vaquiltmuseum.org/2019-sewalong

I’ll bet it’s fun and rewarding to see your flower border come to life. It’s beautiful. Have you decided which colors you will use for your museum quilt?

That's a beautiful antique quilt. What fun to re-create it!

It is a very eye-pleasing quilt! It also looks very ambitious to me--I know you are up to it, and I am not. :)
Beautiful work on your border, Karen.

Beautiful quilt! I love all the flowers "growing" around the border! Looks like a great sew along...but, I already have too many quilts "in the que"...lol! I'll be looking forward to watching your progress! :-)

I am just about ready to go ahead and purchase this pattern. There are so many possibilities and it will be a good challenge quilt.
Your work really inspires me, but of course, it will be something that I start after March. Hoping things get back to normal soon. 2nd surgery for Clay is on the 13th - that is good news and hopefully the recovery really begins. Hugs

Your quilt is looking super fantastic! I am really enjoying working on it.

Karen in Breezy Point said...

Oh--these are soooo tempting! Your flowers are so sweet--I'm sure they are lots of fun to work on!

Robin said...

You are picking out just the right colors for this. Are you going to use the same colorway as the original for the center or do you have something else in mind?

It really is a fantastic border design. I've enjoyed seeing yours and Lori's come to life!

Radka said...

Lovely border, so important for finishing a quilt.

Your color choices are fantastic! You are really making me wish I had joined in. Next time for sure!

Jennie in GA said...

Love your progress. Joining in is really tempting, but I know that I couldn’t do this one and Mary Brown, so I will just live vicariously through yours.

Marie said...

Hi Karen, I love the borders, flowers are among my favorite things. I will be glad when I can get back to my quilting and sewing, this healing is a very slow process. Have a great week. Hugs,Marie

Your flowers and the colors are just delightful, Karen. I especially like the fact that you placed the stems of the flowers with their bottoms toward the edge of the quilt. So often border elements are placed so the bottoms are toward the center of a quilt but if a quilt is on a bed, or even a table, it makes sense that the bottoms are at the edge so the element faces upward when hanging. Just my opinion, of course.

Oh these flowers are wonderfully sewn. I'll add my compliments to your beautiful Circuit Rider too. What a wonderful quilt as is everything you make, of course. I also like your sweet header. Happy Stitching from me.

In this fashion my colleague Wesley Virgin's biography launches in this shocking and controversial video.

You see, Wesley was in the army-and soon after leaving-he revealed hidden, "MIND CONTROL" tactics that the government and others used to obtain whatever they want.

THESE are the same SECRETS lots of celebrities (notably those who "became famous out of nowhere") and the greatest business people used to become wealthy and successful.

You probably know how you use less than 10% of your brain.

Really, that's because most of your BRAINPOWER is UNTAPPED.

Perhaps that thought has even taken place INSIDE OF YOUR very own head... as it did in my good friend Wesley Virgin's head 7 years back, while riding an unlicensed, trash bucket of a car without a license and with $3 on his debit card.

"I'm absolutely frustrated with going through life paycheck to paycheck! When will I become successful?"

You've taken part in those questions, isn't it right?

Your success story is waiting to start. Go and take a leap of faith in YOURSELF.
