    Not finished yet - still need to applique and put together and quilt but just wanted to share what I have so far. The runner is folded back on itself in this picture. It measures 110" long so it doesn't fit on the design wall. I guess I am hooked on runners since doing the French Roses one. Anyone have any ideas on how to quilt this? Hope you like it.

    That is soooooo beautiful. Everytime I see a quilt, etc. with butterflies, I think of large meandering quilting with big loops every now and again - the way butterflies fly.

    Will the butterflies be 3-d? Love your colors. Don't have a clue about the quilting. Sorry, just not there yet...

    How beautiful!How did you make your flowers? They look like carnations. I agree with the loop-d-loops in quilting. It will look like the butterflies are flying around.

    That's really pretty. Never saw anything like it. I would quilt big loopy swirls in the direction the butterflies are flying and maybe some flowers here and there. Be sure to show us it after quilting!

    The ruches roses are from this tutorial (thanks to gal288) http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-105852-1.htm They aren't as perfect as hers but I like them anyway.
