    This is so gorgeous!!! It reminds me of a quilt that was on the front of an AQS Magazine.

    It's beautiful now...I can just imagine after it's finished. I'd love to have the pattern for it. Did you use a pattern or make this one up yourself.

    Stunning applique work! It's gorgeous! Can't wait to see how it looks once it's beaded.
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    I went to Barns and Nobel to the kids section and found a butterfly coloring book. I went to Staples and had them enlarge one that I liked. I cut templet plastic into the different shapes, then cut the fabric and fused them to the white ground. I finished quilting it and now i'm beading it. When I hace at least one butterfly done I'll post my progress. I hope this helps. Thanks :-)

    It looks great just as it is. But we all have things we enjoy and if beading is your thing, go for it.

    Velvety-vibrant, such rich colors, it will be very attractive.
