"Things that Flutter By" Quilt

by frosty- dee

Had great fun choosing all the vibrant fabrics for this one ;-)
I hand appliqued all the butterflies and dragon flies on to the hand dyed background. I then embroidered the detailing. pieced the border together. I then made a giant mosaic butterfly for the back.
Because there is so much detail in this quilt, I took lots of photos and edited them into a video

Each Butterfly and Dragonfly was stitched on by hand and then detailing was embroidered on by hand.

This is fab! Clever you :) So bright and happy and yet the butterflies give it a feeling of tranquility.
