Here's a little closer detail of the fabric. It's so beautiful with muted pastels and detailed butterfly sketches. The quilting was not done by me. This was the first time I sent a quilt to get quilted by a long arm quilter. I sent it to Missouri Star Quilt Company. I usually like to do everything myself but this huge quilt was going to be very difficult to quilt on my little home sewing machine. Although it's more expensive than doing it myself, it was definitely worth it. They really did a fabulous job and it was so quick!
The binding is completely slipstitched by hand. This is one part of the quilt making process that I really learned to love. It's time consuming but looks so much nicer. I've learned to relax into it and enjoy each stitch rather than focus on just getting it done. It took me maybe 3 or 4 days to complete the binding.
There we go! Now Butterfly Quilt is going to the washing machine for it's annual wash!
