Pink butterflies

I'm helping out a friend who can't do her own machine quilting.
A while ago she passed two quilts on to me to finish off.
Mmmmmm. Not just stippling. It needed a bit more.
These cute butterflies needed something a little bit more.

So I added little rosettes in the centres of all the intersections.
These were done with the Westalee quilting rulers.

I drew lines from one side to the other and cross hatched the centre.

I stippled all over the butterfly printed fabric..

I have made a continuous butterfly quilting pattern for the border.
Stitched it with the machine without cotton to make holes in the paper. 
Pounced chalk through the holes. (Which didn't work too well)
Then I had to draw over with FRIXION pens. I love these pens.
