    I agree -- I'm definitely adding the black sash and antenna when I make mine.

    Me too. Also, instead of applique, I would change my thread to black and quilt in those antennas. Or use fabric ink and draw them in. I'm not good at hand embroidery.

I took out the cornerstones, added black sashing for the bodies and some applique antennas.

    Very cute! I like it better without the corner stones too.

    I like this quilt better without the cornerstones.

    It's ok, I already made two butterfly quilts this year, not
    ready for another one just yet.

    I think I might try my own version of this. I love the batiks, but I can see other possibilities. I never sew 2.5" strips the full length. I always cut them in half. Better control, less chance of bowing, just easier all the way around to handle. Since I don't do the JRR, it's not an issue.

    It would be cool to make it scrappy with string pieced blocks as the starting place. I kept thinking about making the center of the butterfly in black then quilting or appliqueing on some antenna.
