    Butterfly hand Pieced Done. Thanks for the help!

    I had asked for ideas on this quilt a while ago, then my back went out and had to take a quilting break for a few weeks. Below is the link to the original thread.

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/main-f1...e-t171672.html

    I just wanted to thank you all for the suggestions. It was quite challenging to do since it was hand pieced and appliqued. It was not even and not much matched, but it is beautiful and it was an honor to finish something that was started for the family.

    You did great! I have used several of your same fabrics. I like how you utilized them in your own unique way and your quilting is just perfect. Gives the illusion of the butterflies flitting about!
