Using up and not buying for a sqaure is still my theme so this time I used thick royal blue acrylic felt as the background because I knew it was going to be a problem sewing the edges once the pieces were attached. The diamonds are made of vilene and covered with hand-dyed silks that have been edged with various threads. These were then attached in rows with a variety of small square buttons in complimentary colours together with a very rebellious round red one to draw the eye. I have really struggled with "Abstract", I think it was just too broad a subject for my taste although I have to say that those who have already posted did a truly splendid job so well done!
