When the buttons go on it's almost done

When I do crazy quilting there is a specific order...piecing, laces, trims, embroidery, beads and the final step is the buttons.. So when you see me adding the buttons you know it's almost done.  I've been collecting the buttons for my women's suffrage quilt for 3 years.  They are mostly vintage metal and black glass.










I have been doing buttons all week...hundreds of them.

At first I was a bit disappointed that you didn't use the suffragette colours of purple white and green but then I realised that there is method in your madness after all - these colours suit the old images perfectly. It's looking great Gerry, thanks for showing it.
