Dress Buttons

I'm unveiling my next block in my new quilt project using Pam's fabric.  The quilt will have basic quilt blocks along with a little applique.  I like to do both in projects.
I love little dresses.  So I brought them into this quilt by slightly changing a past project.
Pam's fabric is sew beautiful and versatile.  I love using it in my blocks.  I'm using faux buttons I found here.  There are lots of sellers for the little button appliques if you look in etsy.com.  I've used real buttons in quilts in the past and of course they could be used in this quilt, too.  But I like the soft button "look" I'm using this time.

More later.

I know what dress pattern you adapted. teehee! This one is adorable, Nanette. The faux buttons are so stinking cute - how are you keeping them in place?

Yikes, those are cute. Much as I love real buttons, I think those soft ones make a lot of sense here.

How sweet; it reminds me of dresses when I was a little girl. It is amazing that someone is making little fabric buttons like that.
