    I have hand quilted quite a few quilts and love to piece quilts too, a love taught me by my Mother. This, my first picture is not a quilted quilt but one made because my Grandchildren loved to play with the old buttons their Grand and GreatGrandmothers had. An Idea was born in my feeble mind, so I purchased 2 queen size sheets and 2 high loft battings then sewed the buttons on in a grid pattern. Each button has a "backer button", the only purchased buttons and many backer buttons were from the shirts of the men in the family. The buttons were chosen randomly as the two grandchildren decided they wanted them sewn on. There are buttons from Great-Great Grandparents, Great, Grand, parents and their mothers wedding dress and their baby clothes. It was made for the oldest, Kacey, my granddaughter. The grandson got a bluejean quilt with 52 pockets, a gift in each pocket.

    The whole quilt.

    I am so sorry, I did not mean to jump on sewsan's quilt thread. She made such a lovely and memorable quilt for her child and herself.

    Welcome, sawsan, from CT. Your crazy quilt is lovely! I think you'll enjoy this board.

    And Gangles, your button quilt is a great idea! I think your grandchildren must have had fun doing it with you - and will continue having fun talking about which button came from which relative!

    Your quilt is adorable! I am sending e mails out to my grandchildren with new babies and requested the collect jammies and soft clothes as they outgrow them. Then I can make quilts for the newest 4 great granddaughters all under born in the last 2 1/2 years.
    Thanks!

    The crazy quilt is adorable. And yes, it does seem to be so soft and cozy.

    And the button quilt is so unique. Is it very heavy?

    Had to go back to find the button quilt. That is so cool. Great idea and it didn't cost an arm & a leg to make, but is a keepsake. Can you write a chart for your granddaughter so she'll know which button came from which relative. One of these days she might forget & that would be sad. Did you make a tag for the back (can't remember what you call them)?
