Patches and Buttons

Lots of Japanese fabrics were used in this quilt.  Fabrics were cut into squares and rectangles, placed into position and hand quilted with perle cotton using embroidery stitches at the edge.  Fabric is similar to homespun so the edges could be frayed.  Some of the pieces had threads pulled from middle sections to appear as holes.  One fabric has the looks of wind blowing so all the buttons are positioned to that effect.
