Newspaper: second stage

When I first pieced “newspaper” I had plans of using
geometrical embroidery, but looking back at some other machine embroidery designs I had used, I was drawn to BUTTERFLIES,and I thought why not use the same design in the two basic colors running down the length of the quilt!
At this stage, I’m debating whether to employ more embroidery designs, or to stay with quilting patterns running (haphazardly?/diagonally) down the quilt.
Whatever stitching is added, I plan to stay with RED and BLACK, in keeping with the colour ways used in the pieced quilt.

  1. Love the addition of the butterflies – they really add to the design! The colour combo looks great too =D

  2. I like it! I wonder if you tried a bigger free motion embroidery mimic of the design of the flower fabric design. that might look cool.

  3. I like this and will watch with great interest how it grows.
