Metamorphosis of my wall hanging...

All 12 of my moth and butterfly blocks are finally pieced together with sashing and border fabric. Next is to decide on a bit of quilting and where. Any suggestions? It's going to be tricky with all those beads and baubles attached to each block – should be fun, however. Also think the piece needs a few embroidered caterpillars somewhere.
Thanks for taking the time to look at our coop project. I plan to show you Vicki's wall hanging as soon as I get photos. Have a great weekend.

It's gorgeous! I love moths and butterflies! Gee, I wonder how it would look having some caterpillars meandering along the sash?

This is some amazing quilt! Everything about it is gorgeous! Hand quilting, at least around the butterflies, could help protect the beading. Thanks for stopping by my blog also.

I love, love, love this piece. It is beautiful and very inspiring. If you add caterpillers/larvae I agree that it would look good meandering around the border. Can't wait to see it totally finished!

Oh WOW, that looks amazing! I've just started experimenting with my sewing machine and this is truly inspiring work. Love the colours and the appliques. So elegant shapes! Thank you for your lovely comments on my blog! It's a lot of fun reading your blog and seeing similarities to my own... We both enjoy a wide variety of crafts, although you focus more on fabrics than paper, while I do the opposite. ;) Your sewing projects are an inspiration.
