Most of the time, you end up with an assortment of different buttons that don't match. What to do with them? They can be worked into a Crazy Quilt, if that's your cup of tea or you can make this lovely embroidered medallion sampler with stitches that embrace each button in a delicate frame hand embroidered on a ground of appliqued wool.
