2015-15 Butterfly Topper

butterfly-topperThis butterfly topper started with a leftover block that was not quite accurate at the center meeting points.  I decided that a central applique would hide the mismatched points.  The butterfly was fussy cut from a remnant in my scrap bin, fused to the centre and then secured with a narrow zig-zag stitch.  I then added two borders that echoed the colours of the star block.  The quilting is a an allover butterfly design.  If I were to do it over, I would choose a different thread colour, as I feel this medium blue thread does not enhance the piecing.  This topper will be a donation to my fall fair silent auction table.
