Saturday, January 22, 2022

Welcome to this week's stop on the Sew Much Fun Tour!

I have loved seeing all the blocks in the tour so far, and this week I'm adding a button!

This is part of a larger project with dozens of other pattern designers! Each week (for a whole year!), a new FREE quilt block pattern is released with a sewing theme. Each block is just 6" square, so if you sew along, you'll have a wonderful sewing themed quilt at the end! (Don't miss the giveaway at the end of the post too!)

To make this block, you can use both the right AND wrong sides of the fabric! It's a fun trick to make the ring lighter in color!

If you're using solid fabrics or batiks, you'll need to pick a lighter fabric to use for the ring though since those are the same on both sides!

I used my AccuQuilt to cut the 1/2" circles for my button holes. I used the same die to make the thimble quilt block too!

This time, I used Heat-n-Bond Lite, but I usually use Lite Steam-A-Seam 2. Either one works great for this block!

Once fused into place, I used Aurifil 50wt thread and a straight stitch to sew just inside the raw edge of each piece. I used colors Dusty Rose #2452 and Bright Pink #2425 for my pink button, and Dove #2600 for my button holes to match my Kona Silver background fabric.

Wouldn't a whole quilt of buttons be so fun?! I might not be able to resist making this one!
