                      Terri  had sent me this paper pieced butterfly as a gift....
                  Here is the (finally ) finished table topper that I made with it
                                                 in the medallion style
                                            thanks so much Terri , ;))) it really inspired me...
I hand quilted it with perle cottons...

And I did a new-to-me free-form, raw edge ruffled binding......I thought it just went with
the idea of a fluttering butterfly....;)))

                             (see "Zazu's"  Youtube  channel for instructions)

Here is the reverse  : an Asian  Ladies side: with the last pieces of geisha fabric....

                                  This is the start of my "Finish-a-Thon...."
                 I have decided that I canNOT make anything new until all those
                                                  UFO's are D O N E ..

Wish me luck  --
                                       next up will be  Snowballs...
