    Butterflies everywhere quilted by rosemaynes

    This is my customers quilt. I have never been a fan of the pieced butterfly but this one I think has to be the best one yet. I added to her butterflies with more and more butterflies. There are butterflies in all the borders and I added butterflies in the center open areas.
    Thanks for taking a look.

    Love the way you used Butterflies to set off the butterflies on the quilt top ! Great pairing

    Very nice! I like the piecing, and love the quilting. The butterflies are complimented well by the linear type of meandering that you did.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    The butterflies are really pretty, but your quilting really sets it off. Wonderful job.

    I agree! I personally like pieced butterflies (I like all types of butterfly quilts) & this one is beautiful. But your fabulous quilting kicks it up even another notch... up to the spectacular level! Great job!
