    Wow -Beautiful - are those all appliqued?
    What size are your templates? Are they your design or a patten. I have a love of butterflies and have been collecting butterfly fabric. One day I'll put them together.

    Wow, very stunning! Love the contrast of the black with bright colors. Any ideas yet on how you'll quilt it?

    What a modern look to the "old" craft of quilting.
    Your butterflies are gorgeous and I just love all of the colors you used and how they stand out on the black background.
    I am wondering, too, did you applique and what technique did you use. (satin stitch, hand turned needle, etc......)


    (oh, and by the way, if you tire of it---I'll be glad to give it a forever home! :mrgreen: )
