Hannelore Kreinfeld

I have never met Hannelore Kreinfeld, nor do i speak German
but I reckon she is definitely part of the Bonkers family!

I did have a giggle at the reporter suggesting that Hannelore had an unusual hobby -
 if only that reporter knew that Hannelore is not alone - there are many many others out there!

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.

Buttons I found on the internet today...

All available for sale via eBay
