    Wow that's going to be stunning! If I remember correctly you've got 5 or 6 of these butterflies to do; good luck and can't wait to see them finished!

    BEAD IT, BEAD IT, BEAD IT! It will be a magnificent piece when finished and you'll be so glad you put the extra effort into it. I saw your original posting of this quilt and how you used a coloring book page to create it, so keep the creative juices flowing and please bead it. Thanks again for inspiring and sharing.

    The beading does make the butterfly wing glow. it is pretty without the beads but spectacular with the beads. This is where you get to suffer for your art.

    Bead! I love beading. It takes time but wonderful to gaze on once it's done.
