    sewing on buttons

    I was sewing decorative buttons onto a quilt top, and made two discoveries:

    1. Don't sew the buttons on until AFTER you have quilted the area, and

    2. When attempting to sew on a button, put the fabric into an embroidery hoop. It just makes things easier.

    However, don't attempt #2 until you've read #1. Ask me and my seam ripper how we know.....LOL
    She looks for wool and flax And works with her hands in delight.

    Thanks for this hint. Nice to know.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    That's a great idea about the embroidery hoop. I would have never thought of that.

    Thank you for the tips. I also sew mine on with dental floss. Those buttons never come off.
