Red Button Adventure
I found this kit (pattern and buttons) at Sew Many Quilts in Bend, Oregon. I had heard of them and wanted to try one. Once I got home I realized that I needed reds a creams to create the piece so I picked them up from my local quilt shop.
The piecing part went quickly, now I am down to the embroidery and hand quilting. It is an adventure in things I had not tried until now.
The pattern is from Red Button Quilt Company called Little Red Three (#503). They carry a couple others that I am interested in trying. Will wait until this one is done and hung up before I decide on the next.
The buttons are what really fascinated me. They are so tiny and I am not sure how they can make them this small. The ones in this kit are flower shaped. They also make round ones that are 1/8".
The reds are used are a mix of civil war and random reds and creams that went together and did not fight with each other. Until next time - I craft so I don't unravel~!
