I'm enjoying beading these butterflies!
The top of the quilt needed some attention and final balancing, so one more butterfly flew in to help out.
This design was inspired by a little graphic on a food wrapper...truly!
I had thought the warm red and magenta beads would go in the center of the wings, but that didn't happen.
I'm glad I used the pink fabric for my base, however. It gives a warm undertone to the cool of the blue and silver beads.
All of the butterflies are appliqued on with a simple whip stitch.
It was fun bringing him in for a landing on these African daisies!
Just one more element to go and the embellishment on this quilt is really and truly done...I'll add some Sweet Woodruff "ground cover" along the bottom....
