    My friend, Maxine, pieced this queen sized beauty. The colorful asian border print gave her the color palette, and me the butterfly idea for the quilting. I couldn't resist putting a fun butterfly in the snowball blocks. The pale yellow color in the snowball block gave me an excuse to buy the light yellow thread for the butterfly. I used King Tut in varying colors on the top, and pale yellow Bottom Line in the bobbin. This took me several days to get quilted. It was a fun project.

    Thanks for looking,
    Cynthia

    It's so beautiful! I love your butterfly! That is so pretty! All of that pale yellow gave you great place to showcase quilting...which is such a treat. As a long arm quilter I have started looking at the backs more often....and I just LOVE your back...it is so pretty and we see all of your hard work! It's beautiful! Good job!

    The Tennessee Waltz quilt design is one of my all time favorites & you & your friend did a fabulous job with this one! That gold fabric was a perfect choice!
