Free Tutorial: Button-able Garden Stakes

JABC Button-able Garden Stakes |

When I finished working on the Bloom & Grow Mini Quilt, I couldn’t help but sneak in one more quick project with the fabrics and buttons featured in the February Button Lover’s Club: Words with Buttons GROW box. I wanted to make a quick plant stake that I could add to a pot of flowers before gifting them to a friend. I loved making them so much, I made two and just had to share how to make them with you!

Home Grown Giveaway

Nancy Halvorsen Art to Heart

The best thing about creating the HOME Button Lover’s Club box was working with a very dear friend. Created to include in the HOME box, the Home Sewn mini quilt shows off the rich colors and playful florals of the brand new Home Grown fabrics—designed by Nancy Halvorsen.  We’ve been working with Nancy since 1997, making buttons to match the delightful images she’s drawn to fill over 60 books and patterns. And quilters know that Nancy also uses her own fabric, printed by Benartex, to make those images come alive.  Fabric and patterns make Nancy’s designs special, but each fabric line also inspires other projects–including our new mini quilt.  The HOME box gave us the perfect reason to create with the lovely blues, aquas and greens, and add splashes of whimsical floral prints.  We named our mini quilt Home Sewn in honor of the Home Grown fabrics.
