Default Butterflies are free (almost)

This was a ufo that I obtained via a silent auction at my guild. Someone had made the wallhanging, fmq'd the background and quilted the border, then fused the butterflies to the background. For some (unknown to me) reason, they stopped there.
This was part of a job lot of things. I decided to use it to practise some decorative stitching.
Fun and done!
Colours are much brighter in real life!
Sorry it's sideways, my computer is being cranky this morning and won't cooperate to rotate it.

How nice that you got to skip all the prep work and go right to practicing your decorative stitches! And came out with a beautiful wall hanging too!
