Hand Warmers

A fun winter quilt! "Hand Warmers" is found in the book Holiday Wrappings: Quilts to Welcome the Season. As you can probably tell, the quilt needs to be quilted and bound -- and have decorative buttons added. But, I needed something on my wall for January, so it will remain there throughout the month! It will be so cute when done! It's a great pattern to pull from your black and white stash and the brightly colored applique mittens don't take much fabric at all. Now, the buttons may be another matter -- 96 white buttons (5/8") for around the snowflakes and 120 bright buttons (1/2" to 7/8") for on the mittens (3 buttons on each mitten). So, start collecting those buttons!

I don't think I can be your friend any more. Now I have to make this one. Yours turned out wonderful! Not sure if I'll do ALL the buttons... but we'll see. I do have to keep up with my quilt sisters.

Maybe you should take a break from quilting. Or not show me any more patterns. Or maybe I should have some self control.... or maybe not. I'm off to go through my black and white stash.
