A co-working has given up her knitting business and as such wanted to divest herself of a large number of supplies. Fortunately I inherited a large collection of wooden buttons a large supply of various beads. I was so pleased with some of the buttons that I needed to start using the immediately.
I decided to put a new spin on the Grandmothers Garden patter by using origami fabric flowers as the blocks and one of the lovely set of buttons as the centers for blocks. All of the blocks are hand stitched,the batting and backing added as the blocks are formed, and the units are hand pieced together. The following picture shows the number of blocks that I have completed to date.
