Reunion Sampler

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.
