Crazy Quilt Button Hearts

These Crazy Quilt Button Hearts took me a little bit longer to finish than they normally do.  I hand crocheted the trim for each one and then sewed that on by hand:




The maples leaves are metal leaves from a candle holder arrangement that I bought at a garage sale a few years ago for a dollar or 2..  My husband cut the leaves off for me and primed them with car primer and then I hand painted them with acrylic paint. 

Most of the buttons are vintage although a few are newer and I made the beaded dangles to go with each heart.  So these are done and in my Etsy shop.

I still have to finish up the last 2 purses that I made and I have to sew up some new blocks so I have something to stitch on when I finish up the little gifts that I'm working on.  Yes, I will share them but not until later this year.

I think I have some of those metal leaves in my stash somewhere too and I know they would have been from a yard sale. Wonder if it's the same candle holder!!
