All Buttoned Up: 12 Quilts from the Button Box (That Patchwork Place)


This work features 12 quilts from the button box. Quilters collect fabrics, books, patterns - and buttons, of course! But how can quilters use their button stashes to jazz up their quilts? This team of sisters, inspired by their grandmother's button collection, offers ideas for adding flair, whimsy, and fun to quilts with a bounty of buttons. Twelve bursting-with-buttons projects feature wall, lap, and bed quilts, all inspired by childhood memories. Find ways to use most any button in a quilt, from vintage Bakelite buttons to fabric, metal, glass, pearl, and ceramic buttons. Learn more about buttons from "The Button Box," a tip-box feature that shares how to collect, apply, and craft your own buttons.
