Buttons for Quilting

I am a very lucky quilter because I inherited my grandmothers treadle sewing machine. This is the very sewing machine I learned to sew on. Itís the kind of treadle that has three drawers on each side of the machine. Similar to this one.

When the treadle arrived at my home, I opened the drawers and they were full to brimming over with buttons. Lots of buttons. I somehow imagine that these buttons were not only from my Grandmothers stash, but from relatives before her. There are some pretty old buttons there. I have kept them and every now and then I pour them out onto my sewing table and play.

I know there are a lot of quilters out there that love buttons too. So Iíve sourced a button box full of websites that deal in buttons. All sorts of buttons, buttons, buttons. I hope you enjoy the surf!
