today's atc began it's life as a sun.
After my lazt day yesterday, I decided I needed to get some work done - ahh guilt is a great motivator!
I finished another three red button blocks.
For challenge 3 at Tangled textiles, I made a red quilt using buttons in Beryl taylor style you can see it here and here.
I actually designed too many blocks and so am putting together another one
The top one is on a bronze brocade, then a circle of gold sequin waste, squares of red and cream organza placed at 45 degrees to each other. The cream organza is frayed. next, four vintage mother of pearl buttons on the corners of the cream organza, and in the centre a circular metal filigree finding held down by a bead and sequin.
The bottom one is on red satin with two frayed cram/gold satin squares at 45 deg angle with a large pink vintage button and another mother of pearl button topped with a heart shaped brad. The edge of each square was beaded with red metallic bugle beads.
TAST 2012 last week, this close-up can serve as a sample.
The pot of gold is not at the end of the rainbow, it is in the sewing room.
