'Flutterby' Mini Quilt

Talk about knocking down multiple birds with one stone!  This little quilt is hitting three!
 I first was inspired to make it due to Le Challenge theme of Wings, so it was my (not quite finished) entry over there.
It was made more specifically for our Quilt Guild's Crayon Challenge
My color was melon.  These little quilts are auctioned off to support various areas of our local hospital.
 A close up of the small stippling, stripey body and hand beading.
Here's a shot of the back.  Some appropriate bug and butterfly backing!  I FMQ'd the label this time.  A more permanent way to 'write on' fabric.  My FMQ is about as messy as my real handwriting!

And finally, this is my Mini Quilt entry for the Blogger's Quilt Festival.


The Facts:
12" x 12"
Fusible raw edge applique and home machine quilted.
Beaded by Hand.
Double binding applied.
Warm 'n Natural batting
