Butterfly Art Quilt, the Current Project

Here is my current project. The butterfly is appliqués to the background, but the butterfly itself is pieced. The background is supposed to be a leaf on which the butterfly is resting. It's made up of many 45 degree diamonds sewn together in one large piece then cut to resemble the lower edge of a leaf. To date I haven't quilted it yet, just finished it this morning. It's about 50" by 51". I hope to have it completed it in a couple of weeks.

  1. BEAUTIFUL. I look at those diamonds and cringe because if I had done that it would be waving like a flag on the forth of July.
