"Sunny Butterflies" 26 by 45 inches
Well, this is the finished quilt and I have to say I am quite happy with the results.
But this is how I found it while reorganizing my studio:
I started this quilt 6 years ago. Examining the composition, I realized why I didn’t finish it—I used only dark colors and no contrast to harmonize! What was I thinking.
I asked myself: How can I bring this quilt to life? I challenged myself to make this quilt sing with *texture*. For that I used leftover batting, thick 12 and 28 weight threads for hand and machine embroidery and seed beads.
First, I needed to rip the bottom part of the quilt, where I used thin threads....sigh, this is such a tedious work.
When I was happy with each butterfly, I loaded my sewing machine with 28 weight aurifil thread and started sewing freely.
