Butteryfly is done except for the hand-stitching of the binding!
Here is a picture after the orange was quilted:
I really like how you can see the orange. My favorite area is probably the clam/scallop shapes right above the butterfly's head. I double stitched them for more emphasis. This was stitched with an orange Glide thread by Fil-Tec.
I decided to limit my palate of colors to three so the butterfly would still stand out. The final quilting was done with a red Isocord Poly thread. I went for a larger scale in part so it would show more and because I had a lot of space to fill! I also decided to put some large circles in a few places to try to unite the edge.
The yellow stitching was small, the orange medium, and the red large. At first I wasn't too sure about this, but I'm glad now that it's complete because it really lets the butterfly stand out.
The echoed clam shell in a circle above is probably my favorite design on the quilt. I love how it looks like a flower. Time to go hand stitch!
