Do you have a treasure in your closet? Part II

Do you have a treasure in your closet? Part II

I decided to use  flowers, hearts and loops in the pink areas, a whimsical flower in each white cornerstone, a small meander in the butterfly background and a couple loops through the wings.  I did not stitch through the polyester double knit butterfly bodies.  The pictures below show before and after pictures of the quilt when it’s on the frame. The dense stitching flattened the puckered areas beautifully!  I was very happy about that!  The batting is Quilter’s Dream Poly and the thread is a white PermaCore.  Here’s a link to Part I of this quilting story.
