My DGG (14 yrs old) is entered her first quilt in a local contest and can't decide if she wants to add the butterfly buttons. Need another opinion. Thanks for your suggestions. The fabric pattern is stripes and butterflies.

This is the butterfly quilt

Add the butterflies! I did a jar quilt once with bug fab. Didn't worry so much about placement of bug buttons...just sewed where the dropped. She made such a cute quilt. Job well done. Does she have a fab stash yet? Oh...maybe worm buttons too?
