    The buttons do add that extra touch. If the quilt is for real use she could applique just 1 large butterfly in a corner (using fusible web).
    She did a great job!

    First of all what a great job by your grand daughter - sure hope she places in show!! She deserves it - she must have had a great teacher lol

    Go for the buttons or even applique some butterflies randomly throughout the quilt - if there is enough time I would be happy to cut butterflies with my go machine if you send fabric!!!

    Whatever she chooses will be great - Please keep us posted thanks cheryl :-D

    I love the butterfly buttons. By all means tell your grandaughter to use them on the quilt, and tell her she did a great job. I love to see kids interested in making quilts. Cheers to your gd.

    The buttons would really make the quilt stand out and be different. I love the quilt and the buttons would be really cute.
