Quilting a Butterfly
Here is the brimstone butterfly again. I have just finished quilting around the edge of the appliqué.
To give it a bit of extra body I added an extra layer of wadding to fit the shape of the appliqué.
Once the extra layer was tacked in place and trimmed, I used pins to hold the layers in place around the butterfly and stitched around it, using the method shown in yesterday's post.
So there you have it. Stuffed butterfly. Sounds like a delicacy from the declining Roman Empire.
