September 2010: Button Box

The "Button Box" block is a real treat for those of us who like to collect buttons, beads, charms, pins, hooks, lace, and all the other little thingys that we expect to have a use for someday. Well, that day has arrived! What a curiousity quilt this will be for one lucky participant!
The block is simple. Start by cutting a 3" square for the center. Then cut some 1" strips for the borders. (Finished sizes will be a little smaller than 3" and 1") Sew two borders onto your center square. Apply embellishments. How to tie everyone's blocks together? Include something red!
See you in September!
