What materials did you use? Mottled blue/grey/green batik, black thread, drawing of a butterfly my granddaughter found on line (she's not yet 4), and some leaves and flowers I added.

What are you most proud of? That I did it! That I designed it and created my own work of art. Thank you Lola!!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take Lola's class on Thread Art -- you will never regret it. And yes, you can do it! I didn't think I could either.

Yes, can't wait to see the finished product. I particularly like (so far) how your background quilting makes your butterfly and flowers pop!

Thank you! I was quite surprised by that, since I didn't do the overlay technique. They are quite puffy which makes me very happy!

Wonderful design and the quilting is also beautiful. I am very, very, proud of you. Fantastic Job. I can only envision a little bit on how this will be colored. Waiting!!!!!

Time has been a factor -- it takes time to color it! Getting back to it tonight after work. Hope to finish by the weekend. Thanks so much for your very kind comments. In the photo I saw a couple areas that need more background and a couple spots on the wings, so those need to be fixed up before it's done. I think my darling granddaughter will like it!
