after a perusal of the stash (not enough of any one thing that matched there) and a shopping trip where I found a remnant that worked well this is quilt top number one from those blocks
I also picked up a remnant that is the same very dark blue, and I'll be putting that together possibly today
meantime, these arrived in the mail yesterday
which means I can get back to working on the bag project
unfortunately, none of these will work as a button substitute, so I will still have to solve that issue, but these will be very awesome zipper pulls!
time to get to work!
