What are you most proud of?
It turned out well, and I am inspired to do more.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Don't over-think it, but plan your colors ahead of time.
What you will need
This was made in a class to learn the technique of piecing fabric with iron-on adhesive
topstitched with standard zig-zagged thread. It's kind of a stained-glass effect.
Q&A with BrightIdeas
It's very pretty
Thank you so much!
OH MY! Stunning! Love this!
Dorene Vandermeer asked:
This looks like stainglass! Amazing on every level. Nice work seemw like an understatement:)
Sew sweet of you! It does look like stained glass, and after this class I was inspired to try more (after my UFOs of course!) and nature themes make the best results, I think! Thanks for commenting!

OK, now I am going to have to put my current project to the side and try this - very nice!
It's really fun, and you need LOTS of fabrics to choose from (never a problem, right?) I was able to do the design and layout in the 2-hour class, and took it home to do the black topstitching. Thank you for commenting!

Just one word gorgeous!
Why, thank you so much! I love this piece, it combines 3 of my loves: butterflies, batik, and sewing! :)
