    what a beautiful wallhanging, and there are no oopses, only opportunities and that's where a little butterfly needed to be!!

    Aren't you clever!!!! If you have more butterflies you might add them as well randomly.

    I like the way you quilted her flight path. Nice touch.
    Blessed are the quilters, for they are the piecemakers.

    That is called a happy accident because that butterfly adds a lot of fun to the quilt.

    Smart thinking and the buttlerfly has its eye on the flower for a sip. Great.

    I used to love tatting, learnt it as a child and was forever being told of at School as I would do it under my desk at classes Love your idea, I have used applique on many an occasion to cover a oopsy.

    What a perfect, creative idea !! Well, they say necessity is the Mother of Invention & you have just proved it.
    So nice to see some tatting, my maternal grandmother did tatting for years & I have missed seeing it so thank you for posting your creation.

    Or you could have added a fused shape on there and quilted around the edge and no one would know you covered up a mistake.

    That's how I got started sewing a tiny heart on everything that I make. I made a quilt for friends' 50th anniversary and when I received it back from the long-armer, there was a tiny rip right along the outer border.......something I am sure that she never even noticed. I didn't want to say anything but had to do something before giving it as a gift.
    A little heart covered it beautifully and all thought it was so clever to put a heart on an anniversary quilt.
    LITTLE DID THEY KNOW!!!!!!!!
    I now place a heart on whatever I do...and being my birthday is Valentine's day, it has become my logo.

    I agree that the butterfly looks like you planned it. When people compliment it, and I am sure they will, just nod your head and say "Thank you."

    Great minds are obviously similar. I finished my one and only bargello (sp?) quilt and the very center spot had a gap! So I cut out two 2' dragonflys and permanently glued them together (they were a match) and, leaving the wings free sewed the dragonfly down, covering the two sides that were loose. It's been 3 or 4 years now and my neice has told me to STOP FRETTING! It's good.

    I would add two more, I think things always look good in odd numbers. . . . .
