Elaine’s Butterfly Quilt

I recently quilted this striking quilt for Elaine.  Elaine’s stitching and workmanship is first-rate.  It can’t really be seen in the photos, but her appliqué stitches are incredibly even and the embroidery butterfly detail is beautiful.

I particularly love how the McTavishing on the background looks like the air moving behind the butterflies, and the feathers in the sashing and border look like butterfly wings.
