These little wall hangings seemed to evolve all on their own. I started out by piecing the borders out of leftover cutout squares from some jordy bags I made a while ago. I then sewed them onto the center, white rectangle. After that, I was going to maybe add some yo=yo's or applique, but somehow I thought better of it and decided on buttons. I reached into my awesome vintage button collection (courtesy of Grandma) and picked out some coordinating buttons and waited for inspiration to strike. The designs in black are all free motion quilted - so much fun!

LOVE this idea! I too have some old buttons, many of which have no mates. What a great way to showcase some unique buttons that would otherwise spend their lives in the button jar, unseen. Kudos to you for your great idea and your lovely little quilts!

they are wonderful! i'm running out of ideas of hand work to make for my mother aunts and granny, so thank you, you just saved my bacon for this christmas! i really love the flowers and the 'family' one, do you mind if i copy them? i think the flowers would look lovely with your original idea of yoyos.
thank you so much for the wonderful idea  Cheesy

Don't "copy" it - how boring!  Take the idea and make it your own!! Wink
