I used to be a quilter, in the old days, when I was exploring EVERYTHING. I made quilts for wedding gifts, to wrap new babies in, to send my daughter off to college with--even a quilt finished with patchwork blocks made by my grandmother. I loved doing it then, even though, looking back now, I don't know where I ever got he patience.
I really enjoyed making this piece, trying to make it look like a quilted fabric block. I think it does...
Thanks to Dover for the butterfly and Rubyblossom for the texture layer that the applique was "stitched" onto. The stitches are a brush that actually "stitches" as you move it around. Some Photoshop filters were applied for the fabric texture, and layer styles to plump it up.
