The Best Laid Plans

Ok, so sometimes things don't work out as planned.  My giant swallow-tail butterfly and rose idea is one of them.  The rose still needs a little extra touch, but the butterfly is not it.  They just don't work together.  The butterfly will need it's own special flower, done in a different technique.  Watch for it here as it evolves!  As for the rose, I'll just have to mull it over.

This wall-hanging is one of my larger pieces and measures about 5' on a side.  It's composed entirely of tiny fused and quilted squares, over 1000 of them.  I'm very happy with it, but I've always felt it needed more.  So, I'm in the process of designing a large tiger swallowtail butterfly to add to the left edge.  We'll see if it works!  (I've always liked a challenge.)
