When I do crazy quilting there is a specific order...piecing, laces, trims, embroidery, beads and the final step are the buttons.. So when you see me adding the buttons you know it's almost done. I've been collecting the buttons for my women's suffrage quilt for 3 years. They are mostly vintage metal and black glass.
I have been doing buttons all week...hundreds of them.
