This was the only "Art Prompt" project made in the last year.
However, I do plan to continue with this project now.
|Button Loon, stretched on canvas and framed.|
I made this little loon quilt in 1991 when I had only been quilting for a few years. I was quite proud of it at the time.

Here's the back with some not so great hand quilting.
Once the quilting was completed. I covered the loon with the buttons. All these were sewn on by machine. It was a little tricky at time to get the overlap and involved a few broken needles.

ART PROMPT - #21 – Use catalogue
HERE'S MY “ART PROMPT” PLAN
One prompt, one project (taking as long as required to finish the project)
It's OK to finish or use a previously started project (UFO) as a starting point.
Make something creative.
Use any Media.
Blog about the project.
Pick another prompt once the project is done.
