Enduring quilt block

This is it, the last block in the
Friendship Quilt Along!

Enduring. That's what great friendships are. They last through thick and thin. The circle of buttons makes me think of how good friends are a constant. Even with the ups and downs of day to day life. Sometimes long periods of time go by without seeing a friend - life happens - but the friendship is still there.

I'm a big fan of figuring out how to work smarter not harder. I quilted the quilt before adding the buttons. Keeping the buttons in place was tricky. In the past, I've used transparent tape but this time I thought I would try a bit of Roxanne's Glue-Baste-It. And it worked like a charm! I also stitched them on by machine. 

Check your accessory box, you might have a foot specifically for buttons. This is what mine looks like…I have a Janome Skyline 7. You can also use your regular zig-zag foot.

Buttons and Binding
I added the binding before adding the last button.
