Decorative Stitching Orange Peel

This afternoon, I spent adding Decorative Stitching around the melons on the Split End Orange Peel quilt.  I choose the to use a small button hole stitch using Superior Rainbow thread #856 Rock Slide.

I started in the middle at the top of a long row.  To make it easy to work with I decide to gently folded the sides and bottom to  make them narrow.  Then I started at the top sewing on the right side working my way down.  Once I got to the bottom, I pivoted and sewed back on the opposite side, back to the beginning.  

I ended up getting 3 rows, and the outer side sewn today! Hoping to get the stitching done tomorrow, and  the borders on the top.

This morning I spent quilting and adding the binding on the Meadow Friends, Layer Cake Quilt top.  I used the Pretty Paisley Pantograph, it came out very beautiful. Now just need to finish sewing up the back of the quilt and I'm done with it.
