I bought a few 5″ x 5″ black frames (inside opening) for quilt market to display some of my Halloween quilt blocks.  The blocks looked cute in the frames, but they were destined for my new Halloween quilt.

So after market I removed the quilt blocks and I was left with empty frames that needed filling.   I decided to play around with some of those cute buttons I have on my website.

Maybe you’ve got some cute buttons you’ve been saving forever and you don’t know what to do with them.  Try framing a few for those last minute gifts!
