Butterfly Quilting

 I recieved this commission quilt in the mail last week.  The only request that the customer had was they wanted it to give their nursing home recipient "a lot to look at".
I knew immediately I'd use my  Butterflies with Words Pantograph to accent the butterflies already in the prints and to add to this quilts whimsical garden appeal. 
The pantograph says: colorful, beautiful, butterfly. 

Upon my customer's request, I used a lime green thread comibination. King Tut in Limestone (A wonderful variegated color) for the top thread and So Fine #450 (Lime) for the bobbin. I think the thread color really complimented her work wonderfully!
