Butterfly Quilt

Yes, I know, its BRIGHT. But hey, I don't like boring! One of my favorite things to do with quilting is to mix traditional techniques or patterns with very non-traditional fabrics. This is an example of a traditional Dresden quilt: 

These are 'butterflies' made with partial Dresden plates with alternating light and dark pieces. The quilting got a little out of control but I was having fun with it:

Gorgeous quilting! I love to see partial dresdens done up differently (I have a little 'file' on my comptuer of cool dresden ideas). I love the bright colors and the butterflies are so fun. The quilting is gorgeous.
