Fabric and buttons

I received the Winter 09 fabric club samples from Kimono House last week.

These are all charm square sized.  My original plan was to use all the squares form the fabric club in my entirely hand-sewn Japanese Kaleidoscope quilt.  Since the class was back in March and I’ve still only done three blocks, I now reckon I have plenty of fabric club squares to play with, so might make a Value quilt instead.  Another project on the ever-lengthening queue.

These beautiful badges were purchased from Lark last time I visited the Sister’s Market in Brunswick.

Terrific for kids party bags, I think!  These vintage buttons are also terrific – but no way am I donating them to kids party bags!

These come from an elderly button collector who sells them through her local quilt shop.  She knows the history of every button.

  1. I must NOT go near Kimono House if I’m ever to pay off my visa card….

    I have some buttons like those ones! I think most of them came from my grandmother, and I always wonder at the stories behind them How lovely to have a link to a direct source of info to yours.
