    I have made this quilt top and since I did not use a pattern and I used very bright colors, I would like your opinion. I have not quilted it yet and if any of you think it is Ugly, for the lack of a better word, I don't want to invest the time. Please help me decide. Thanks :shock:

    Thank you so much, I usually don't use such bright colors and I think that is why I am freaked out.

    Your butterfly's are beautiful....If you hadn't used bright colors they would have just blended in......It's a keeper for sure.

    Your quilt is outstanding. The colors are very vibrant, and are what makes that quilt a winner. Please post a picture after the quilting.

    I have to agree, the bright colors is what makes it stand out and be distinctive. Otherwise, the butterflies would have just blended in and wouldn't be appreciated. I think it's gorgeous, and I will send you my address if you still don't like it :-)

    I love it - where'd you get the pattern for the butterflys? Even though they are one color their shape details are wonderful.
    PM me if you would rather get it off your plate now - I'll quilt it and admire it. heehee :P

    Very nice use of colours, love the delicate shape of the butterfly, those two things really make it for me, well done.

    Thanks so much. My daughter-n-law drew a butterfly and I blew it up at the copy store.
