Stocking Bit 12

I really don't know how I like this button cluster. Many crazy quilters use button clusters, but this is my first attempt. At least, I'm pretty sure it is. I've used a stray button here or there, but not clumped together like this. If nothing else, it adds balance to the heel motif and central area with all the beads and charms.

I like your button cluster. Great job.
The only thing I would suggest is swapping out the bottom square red button for something darker. It is hard to tell the overall composition in the pic, but that would complete the "curve" of the cluster, and keep the eye moving around to the next patch.
Merry christmas.

People either like button clusters or they don't, but this is a nice one.
