    That is GORGEOUS!!!!! Is it your own pattern? I've been wanting to make a couple butterfly quilts, one from 30's and 40's fabric, one from vintage hankies. I think I have enough of the vintage hankies now but usually about the time I get enough, my sister comes from Michigan and cabbages onto a few for her quilts. LOL

    The butterfly applique is a old pattern that I got out of a book I bought at a garage sale.

    The tulips, daisies and little butterflies in the border I made with my embroidery machine.

    Love it! I may have to draw a butterfly like yours, to make for my Mom. I've been wanting to make a butterfly quilt, but haven't found the shape I really wanted.

    I'll do better than that. here are some pictures. Notice the pattern is pretty different from mine. I made mine queen size and changed the checker border and the outside flowers to want I liked and worked for me.
