Great button tip and camp dates


I am working on my #5 project which is a bed size quilt using plaid shirts. Sharon Hultgren emailed this idea to me and it is great: to save the buttons, cut off the entire placket and pin plackets together with a big safety pin and hang it up. When I need to look for matching buttons, I’ll have them–very clever indeed, Sharon!
