Batik Gems - Part 8

The orange quilt is now finished and I even had a proper name for it - Garden in the Sun.  Here it is all finished.


Here is what I quilted in the border. It is a picture from the back, the picture from the front didn't show the quilting very well.


Below I've attached pictures of what the butterfly quilting looks like which was done down the middle column.  If you remember these were outlines that I created from images of butterfly tatoos.





So now onto the next 75th birthday quilt, Cherish Nature.

Gorgeous and I love the name you have given it.

Love it. Those butterflies really pop, did you use a standard 40 weight thread or is that something thicker? It looks great.

The colors remind me of the center of the sun. It is even more beautiful with the quilting !
