It hardly seems like yesterday when I was sat drawing the pattern for this years button club, Fernhill. Once the drawings are completed I love choosing the fabrics and then my chief button designer gets working to finalise how the buttons will look to compliment the design.
Once she has done a selection of different colourways everyone in the studio has fun making the final decisions as to what buttons will be used. Of course we all have a different opinion so it can take a few days before we all agree!
Here is all its glory is 'Fernhill', which if you remember is named after the woods and fields where I played as a child in Dorset, England.
Today we got the first picture of a completed Fernhill, thanks to Anne Marieke Booij. The fabrics Anne Marieke has used are lovely, perhaps we will see it again once the quilting has been completed???
