It is time to return to telling the story of what I did on each block in my I dropped the Button Box Quilt. This is an embellished area on block 63
I trimmed a piece of hand dyed lace which I dyed using procion dyes. If you look carefully you will see whipped running stitch in a thread of similar colour is worked along one side.
I then added 4 plastic novelty buttons that came from my button box.
