The last detail on block 13 is a cluster of buttons. With the exception of the very top button they are all vintage. Some I found at what we call “swap meets” or “Trash and Treasure” markets. I think in America people call them “boot sales”. Some of these buttons also came from swaps and gift from friends
Placement on block:
On block 13 this button cluster sits on bottom right hand corner of the block

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.
