Columbus Metropolitan Quilters

When the local quilt guild needed a membership badge makeover, Karin Harvey from Columbus, OH turned to buttons! "Each badge has the member's name in the center of a quilted-looking star shape," said Karin. "The star always appears on a black background, but the colors in the stars are varied in the interesting color combinations that quilters like." Karin notes that the badges are easy to read and wear well. New members enjoy receiving their offical badge when they join, and it helps everyone to learn each other's names. The badges also serve to identify the guild staff when they put on local quilt shows.
