Sunday Quilt Inspiration: B U T T O N S

I had an idea a while back: use the colors of my favorite button pictures to inspire the colors of a quilt.  Let me show you what I mean.  Start with a pretty picture of really pretty buttons!

Orange, Green and White

Then find some fabrics in the same color family.
Vintage 70s yellow orange and green floral fabric

Then find a quilt or two in pictures!
