I just spend some time looking at a bunch of fabulous winning quilts from the Road to California 2017 Show Quilts. More images HERE and Applique Quilts HERE. This was posted by About Quilts.
I also found this fabric basket tutorial. This might be a nice way to showcase some of your decorative buttons.
The Row by Row Studio has some interesting quilts to use in a project.
For the embroiderers out there, go HERE. You will need to translate this site.
