More Button Blocks & New Autism Charity Design

Here's my completed red & black block:

Button Block 12

Be sure to click on the image to see a larger version at my Flickr site. All of the buttons are antique metal buttons and they are quite lovely!

Once that one was completed, I started on this one:

Button Block 13

I was recently asked what my personal preference for waste canvas size is. Generally, I use 10 count and 8.5 count. I reserve 14 count for small projects like my Comfort Cat dolls. The red block was stitched entirely with 10 count and the blue block so far, has been stitched using 8.5 count. If you're interested in working with charted borders and waste canvas like I do, you can find my E-Book here.

Finally for today, I've added a new Autism Awareness design to my Etsy shop:

Red Heart Autism design

All proceeds from this design will be donated to Our Children's Circle Autism Group.

Hi Pam,

Those buttons are a really finishing touch for all of these blocks! Do you have any special tips for attaching buttons?

It's so much fun to see each block develop....thanks for the photos.

Girl you accomplish more in one week than I do in a lifetime! LOL ... I love the red and black block you are working on now and I think I recognize the center piece of fabric! I need to find mine when I finish my remodeling project and do something with it!!
