    I did not read all of the posts but I like either way. As someone mentioned, it would be lumpy if used for a quilt. The other consideration is what the category is she is going to enter it in. If it is under child's quilt, the buttons might be considered a choking hazard?

    I think the butterfly button is cute. Just don't over do it and maybe keep them toward the edge so you will not sit on them

    I'm for the butterflies. Adds much to the detail of the quilt.

    I agree with bearisgray because if your quilt is to be used you never know who might end up snuggling under it ,including possibly a baby. I do love your granddaughters quilt. It looks beautiful. :)

    Yes, tell her to add the buttons if she wants ... it's her quilt. She has done a beautiful job on the quilt. How exciting to find a 14-year-old who wants to learn to quilt.

    If a baby is to use it, NO. Otherwise go for it. Beautiful colors and well put together
