Tanner's "Reunion Sampler" to go along with this quilt is finally finished.
I love fabric covered buttons. They're so easy to make and add the perfect touch.
Use scraps for the button covers, with fabrics that create a nice contrast.
These are size 45, 1 1/8". When you purchase the "KIT", it comes with the little tools you'll need.
Purchase a canvas frame from a craft store (Hobby Lobby has a good selection) and add linen to it. Staple it onto the back along the inside of the wooden frame.
I used an extra block left over from the Tanner Reunion quilt (link at top of post). It's finished it like a mini quilt with a very thin binding.
Stitch in the ditch using Mono Poly Very Fine Polyester. If your ditch lines are a little wobbly, they won't show up with the poly.
I washed the mini quilt for the crinkled look.
Sew the buttons on, hot glue gun the mini quilt on, and nail a small hanging device into the back.
Time to hang.
