As you can see CQ detail 59 is a cluster of buttons. All of them are modern with the exception of the smallest metal button which is vintage. The Butterfly is also technically a button.
Placement and Foundation Fabric:
This cluster covers the seam between piece 6 and pieces 1, 2 and 5 on the diagram I used when I introduced block 8. In the same article I also talked about the foundation fabrics.
What is the story?
This regularly published series aims to illustrate and document the hand embroidered seams, embellishments and decorations on my crazy quilt I dropped the button box. All articles are categorised in the projects under Crazy Quilt details which enables readers to browse back through the series.
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.
