Fresh from the Farm: New Lynette Anderson Mystery Button Club!
We have been very busy during our Christmas break preparing the year’s first new mystery button club series, and our latest find is sure to excite! Based around hand-painted buttons by designer Lynette Anderson, these patterns are quirky, cute, and entirely original.
You’ll recognise some of the gorgeous characters from previous designs, however there are plenty of completely new features, designs and characters to keep you intrigued. Each month will include a pattern and an original hand-painted wooden button.
Here’s what Lynette has to say about her new button club quilt for 2016:
‘I can’t tell you much as it’s a mystery! I can tell you that it has a farm theme, the finished size is approx. 32″ x 46″ which is slightly larger than previous button club quilts. I have included an alphabet for you to stitch so that you can re-name your farm. Anderson’s Farm combines appliqué, embroidery and simple piecing…
There is a little wool appliqué, I have used some existing buttons and have had fun designing some new ones… I have used fabrics from various collections of mine, it’s been such fun working with my fabrics for this project.’
Featuring a mixture of appliqué, embroidery and simple piecing, this series looks and sounds fantastic, and we’re all ready to get started! You can sign up for this 10-month club online, or on during the New Year Launch. This is a limited edition club so secure your place as soon as you can
