Hooray its finished....

Working in a quilt shop there is always lots of things to tempt me to try, having sold many self covering buttons I thought I'd buy some and have a go. This is what I did, I bought a fabric I could fussy cut and I made these 2 buttons, maybe I can use them on a bag. They were fun and easy to make so I think I'll do some more.
I have been working on this quilt for some time, its called Living the Dream by Leanne Beasley. Today before work I quilted it and it looks so good. I changed a few of the stitcheries and wrote my childrens name just to personalise it a little bit, What so you think? Happy sewing everyone.

Covering your own buttons opens a world of possibilities. Your quilt is wonderful. I really like the way that you have added personal touches to the design. Ann :)

Cute buttons and your quilt looks awesome. (It's on my list to do one day!) I like the quilting design you used ... from the photo it looks quite 'paisleyish'
