Materials/Techniques: The butterfly was appliquéd using the back-basting method. It was enhanced with hand embroidery, as was the background. The hand quilting was done diagonally with cotton thread. A flange, the narrow border and the binding frame the piece.

Artist Statement: I enjoy learning different methods of quilting. I took a class on back-basting and used this appliqué technique for this little quilt.

Dedication: In honor of Charles Price.

This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.

This quilt earned $18 for the AAQI.
