I chose Hobbs 80/20 batting and quilted it with what is know as freehand "Terry Twist" stitching. The quilt measures 87 by 106. It is also the first quilt that I attached the binding on with my longarm. Haven't yet stitched the binding to the back but that will be done in the new year. All the background pieces are 3 1/2 inch bits and pieces of different muslins left from prior projects and the "butterflies" are all scraps (some very small scraps) cut at 2 inch squares to sew on the corners of the muslin squares. I know I am very partial, but I love this quilt! Hope you enjoy looking.
