Seaside Town is name of my mystery button club quilt for 2017 which is due to start in April (hurry up Lynette and finish writing the patterns!).
The quilt finished size is approx. 34' x 44"
and features some delightful little cottages some of which are foundation pieced
and others are appliqués, there are fishing boats and some underwater creatures amongst other things!

Houses

I spotted this lovely mosaic seahorse this last week when we were travelling
in Western Australia. 
Had I not have already drawn and stitched my seahorse then this fellow
would have been perfect inspiration.

Maybe one of these lighthouses inspired me??

How does this program work you ask? 
Each month for 12 months you will receive one of my colour patterns
and one beautiful hand painted or for the budget conscious a etched raw wood button.
We can only paint a limited quantity of buttons each month so places are
limited for the handpainted buttons but unlimited for the etched raw wood ones.
