Out of Body Experience

The wings worked! 

Here they are just laying out on the background fabric - not fused down yet.  I had to laugh at the contrast between the Butterfly quilt and the French Country inspired quilt on the bed underneath. What a difference! 

You may notice a definite missing component to the Butterfly - the body!  I spent so much time on getting the wings right, I hadn't even drafted the body design at the point.

I wanted to keep it simple and in keeping with the fluid flowing design of the wing sections, which to me was round, round, round parts.

This is what I came up with:

Still missing the antennae. Dang - what am I going to do for that?
