Friday Night Sew In

I joined in for the Friday Night Sew In last night and I'm so glad that I did.  I have wanted to make this little wall hanging for over a year and just never seem to get around to it. 
 
Instead of sewing the buttons on I glued them as this will not be getting washed and it was so much easier than fiddling with sewing all those little buttons.

This came in a kit with the fabrics.  I love the fabrics but this is super simple.  They did not put as many buttons on the one the photo they showed showed but I liked the buttons.  I can also think of a lot of other things that you could put on this.

Here it is with the border.  I LOVE it!!!
I think that I will do a tutorial for this and post it as this is so cute and would be a fast little gift for teachers, neighbors, etc.  Would anyone like to have a tutorial for this?
This is going to be a "Make It Take It" project for the Monday Night Quilting group this fall at church.

I don't have photos but I also sewed on my sky scape blocks.  Lot of sewing 2.5 inch strips together.  I think there is a photo in one of my recent posts showing the block.  I think the quilt will turn out great and I like the two rows I've completed.
Thanks to Wendy for hosting the sew in.
 
I have added this to some linky parties.  See the buttons on the sidebar as there are some cute things out there.
