Placement and Foundation Fabric:
This detail is a button cluster which is placed over some old lace on piece 7 on the diagram used when I introduced block 3. At the same time I also talked about the foundation fabrics I used.
Type of lace
The lace is cotton and was found in a second hand shop but was torn. I dyed it and did not worry too much as I knew I was going to cover the hole with buttons.
Procion cold water dyes for the lace

Free Crazy quilt block patterns
In the process of documenting the seam decorations on this quilt, as I get to each block I am diagramming it out for readers as a free crazy quilt pattern. Links to these free pattern pages are listed on the CQ details FAQ page.
