Win a Singer Sewing Machine!

Voting is now open, go here, to vote for my block, Thank You!
Plus make sure to enter in my Giveaway here.

By making a "small" 12" square quilt block and incorporating a full circle in your design.
Oh not on my blog, but you can go here, to read the rules and to enter.  The contest dates are from July 15th to August 31st.
I think I will add a few more buttons.
I used American Made Brand Solids (from bottom to top) dark turquoise, aqua, white, and light cream for the jar.
Totally hoping that the white fabric looks like subway tiles in the background and the jar is sitting on a counter.
I didn't realize how long it takes to add buttons, but I am making sure that they are holding on tight.
I added a few more buttons.
 I sew on my Singer Simple, what do you sew on?
2 more buttons on the button tag, only the middle part of the tag is sewed down.
You can't have a jar of buttons without having a pincushion and needle.
Do you see the "SEW" word in there?
 All Finished.
I used the beautiful Aurifil thread, 2024 white, 2026, and 4670 Variegated grey for the jar lid made out of Moda Cross Weave Gray.
