Red Butterfly

This is the red butterfly that is part of my name panel on the Alphabet Sampler Quilt. You can see Chris' awesome quilting.

I knew Chris was the right person to quilt my quilt when she said to me, "I don't know what I am going to do. I will hang it up and look at it for a while. The quilt will tell me how it wants to be quilted."

I told Chris to do whatever the quilt told her to do. She created the allover quilting pattern and added the little antennae on the butterflies. It's a perfect little touch.

I am thrilled. I can't wait to see the quilt in real life.

Stay tuned.

I'm feeling the vibes of your anticipation all the way across those 1,000+ miles between your place and mine!

Lovely teaser!
