I love to quilt and I love paper piecing and I recently discovered Tartan Kiwi's blog & patterns. She is currently running a competition based on her butterfly pattern.
This photo was my inspiration:
I have used a variety of fabrics by Pat Sloan from her "Bobbins & Bits" range together with black homespun and I have used a black DMC Light Effects Embroidery Floss (E310) to hand stitch the antennae. As I am still gaining confidence with my FMQing, I have kept the quilting simple and stitched the outer ditch of the butterfly in a black thread.
