    That was a good way to finish the year. The colors are bright and I like that. May I ask how you did the Butterflies? Do you use an embroidery machine? I love Butterflies and Hummingbirds. Oh, and how did you do the quilting?
    I like the flower design you incorporated.

    June thanks for your kind words.
    I did the butterflies with my machine.....I bought a Bernina last year snd have enjoyed it. The quilting, I have to give all credit to a lady that quilts all my quilts. She is in Louisiana and never tell her how to quilt them....once she sees them she always seem to know what to do. I have been so pleased with her work. I ship them to her with backing and binding....you can also do the binding your self as hers done by machine.

    Someone is really enjoying her embroidery machine, and making good use of it!

    That is so cheerful! Very nice work. Can't wait to see what you make in the New Year!

    Thanks to each for the kinds words, think I work with one so long and then they loose their appeal.

    I am new at quilting and have finished several quilts. And I am interested in finding someone to quilt my projects. I read you were very satisfied with someone in Louisanna. Could you share her address with me?

    Thanks,

    Sewgirl :-)

    OH my. This took my breath away. I absolutly love it. I am in awe of the colors and the butterfly work. Are they embroidered. My next quilt that I already started piecing blocks is a butterfly block quilt but yours is magnificant.
