I Dropped The Button Box Quilt

Australian quilter, Sharon Boggon, created a wonderful Y2K crazy quilt titled “I dropped the button box“. As a YSK quilt, it had to have 2001 different bits in it – with Sharons’ definition of ‘bits’ being either a different fabric, lace, braid, charm, button or ribbon. 2001 different ‘bits’ was much harder to have on hand than she realised – till her button collection saved the day!

Sharon has many photos of the 6″ blocks and finished quilt online – I have chosen just a few of my favourite – click here, to see more of the photos.
