There have been questions in the past about my header quilt, and today I will share more about it:
The quilt measures 22 x 35 inches and the squares are one inch. It is a memory of the fun I had as a child, sifting through the buttons in my Mom's button box, and was made the year after my Mom died, in 2007. I had seen one in a button shop in St. Charles, MO, years ago, and this is a copy of that quilt. I found this picture below on the web, and it may be of the quilt from the shop in St. Charles, MO. I don't know for sure.
It is quite heavy, so I haven't hung it on the wall, but I usually put it over a table top, for display. I had fun picking out old buttons from Mom's button box to sew onto this quilt. Hope you enjoy reading about it today.
Here's a picture of my labrador retriever, Sally, who is very glad I'm back home.
Hubby is very happy to have me back home too! Today I dashed off to Hampton Roads to take in the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Show, and before I left, he asked me if I was going to buy anything.
I said I wasn't sure, but I did ask him just how much he had spent this past week on his latest golf putter....you know, as just a ballpark figure to give me some idea of how much I could spend at the quilt show. hehehe
