The buttons got covered and looked like a delicious pile of sweeties on my desk! I'm not too impressed with a few of them that appear to have 'corners' but I was working with only one to spare so I'm hoping that the client won't be too unimpressed.
The binding worked a treat and I'm also hoping that the client approves as the brief originally was for piping. But I don't do piping (like I don't do zips!). Piping, to me, is a bit dated. And I'm a bit of a slacker when it comes to proper sewing.
These are what I have been making. Ali almost guessed right! Cushions, though, not a quilt. Ten square and ten rectangular, made from sumptuous tie silk. They are going to a well-known shirt-maker and it my first tentative step back into the world of visual merchandising that I left over 14 years ago.
The covered buttons are purely decorative and I used some iron-on velcro for the back fastening.
