    Had this hanging in my library at elem school. Decided it needed something extra so went to JAs and bought bug buttons. Tossed them on the quilt, pinned them from the back...wha la...just what it needed. Kids loved it too.

    Those buttons provide a great pick-me-up. Perfect "accessories" for a darling quilt.

    The kids aren't the only one to love this quilt!

    I like the way you varied the jar size and had a few escaping bugs---it really added interest to your quilt!
