Curvalicious Buttons ~

Yes! {And Amen!}  Finish #4:

This quilted table runner may be my most favorite, {so far!}

And all because of the buttons!  Well, maybe not  all... but certainly this button fringe charmed me.
... or perhaps it would be the elegant ribbon trim... {it's been hangin' out in my stash for awhile now!}
or the fresh, soft-white cotton thread {King Tut} for quilting?
those satiny... shiny, pretty threads & cords...
... beautifully modern and contemporary fabrics...
And turning those leftovers into sweet finishes ~ no doubt{feels sooo good}

Reunited with old fabrics made new again with embellishments, and quilting.  And I remembered how much I loved making this pattern. {I should do more!}  Did I really just say that?  Yup.  I did.  A quilter's burden, to be sure.  We love fabric, and patterns, and inspiration... abounds.
Back to work I go today.  It's been a lovely, and ever-so-sweet time at home.  I have one more reveal of finish {#5}, and then along with some new items I've made, I'm prepping for another give-a-way for this weekend!  

Happy Grand New Year!

Well, the year is just beginning but you've already got a few finishes! I think you're right, I like this one too, especially the button fringe!

That button fringe is perfect! Now I'll need to add buttons to my list of collectibles (as if two or three big canning jars of them wasn't enough, lol). Great finish!

What a cute, cute button trim!!! I picked up an older Bernina last month and I'm looking forward to learning how to do some of these wonderful embellishments you show us all the time. You are such an inspiration!
