    This is an embellished paper cut quilt. The green part is the size of a fat quarter. It is all hand appliqued and embellished with beads. But it was machine quilted on my Bernina. It was not long arm quilted. The pattern and instructions for this quilt can be found in the book "Butterfly Dance".

    I was surprised it was so small. I'm trying to make it bigger!

    the beaded heart on the iris is quite nice - your quilt looks even more beautiful when seen on a larger scale

    That's beautiful and has a distinct Asian feel to it.

    Love the pattern and execution. The border mimics the movement of the butterflies. Nice work. :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:
