    Nice job, the colors of this quilt to me, means a baby quilt. This is on my bucket list also. Thanks for sharing.

    Certainly no need to apologize how you did the butterflies. They are beautifully done. Do it the way you feel most comfortable. Who cares how long it takes if you are happy with the results. It's your time your're spending.

    Patrice, it's darling! Is there a pattern available? This would be perfect for the quilt I'm making for an animal rescue auction.
    Life has given me so much more than scraps, but I make quilts anyway!

    I love almost anything with CATS! Been looking at French Braid tuts lately. Maybe after I finish some of my UFOs will try to make a small one. Yours is just lovely.

    it's a rectangle. cross my heart. :lol:
    i just love the french braid. It's great used as a border. Something "different" and not too fussy.

    Great looking quilt. Keep up the good work. I think handmade is better. Hands on work--not where you quilt using a computer quilter that you program and sit and watch it quilt. Really a Great Job..................!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Like it lots! A pleasant blend of a several techniques and patterns. I wish, I wish, I wish I had more time to dedicate to quilting so I could try this one too.
