I wanted to make a bunch but called it quits after two.
I tried to make one using the instructions. Ended up threading all the triangles on the needle & thread first (I repeated the first two triangles to make the loop) and then through the center of the base. Then through all the triangles again and then sewed the buttons on. It seemed secure enough and was much easier.

Your son and his family will love the quilt. The ornaments are beautiful. Where did you find the pattern?
