Do you own a button collection?
I think most quilters do.
My collection is pretty small compared to some of my quilting friends.
I don’t know why I have so many bright fluorescent colored buttons.
I do know that many, many of these buttons were cut off of old shirts and other clothing by my mother-in-law and my grandmother and my meme (I can’t add the accents). All of these women lived through the depression and the war and saved their buttons.
As a direct result of my families historical tendencies, I have a lot of pearly white buttons. These get in my way when I am looking for a certain color button.
Do you sort your buttons by color? That is what I am working on here, it will save me some time. More time for quilting!
Have a quilty day!
