What materials did you use? I used colorfull prints in complementary colors. I used a butterfly stencil and used chalk to draw the design on and then free motion quilted the design.

What are you most proud of? quilting the layers together, it was my first attempt at free motion quilting.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I started with 8" squares and cut them into 4 pieces. Some I made into 5 pieces. I then mixed them all up and sewed them together. My advice is to make gentle sloping curves. If the curves are to steep it will be a lot harder to sew. Have lots of patience because all the curves will take a lot of time to sew. Be creative! You could do so much with this idea.
