Materials/Techniques: Cotton fabric, pieced without foundations. Buttons sewn on with clear thread.

Artist's Statement: Years ago I started collecting ordinary buttons. There are no rare or expensive buttons in my collection, but some remind me of events and clothing and are therefore priceless to me. Most however are just there to satisfy my collecting bug. While most of the buttons here are contemporary, there may be some old buttons on this quilt, since I took several from a can labeled "Really Old Buttons". I know most from my Great Grandmother's button box got dumped in with them by accident. She died over 60 years ago and so some of these might have been ones she saved.

This quilt is displayed with Fast Finish Triangles.

This quilt earned $49.67 for the AAQI.
