This quilt began as a beautiful piece of ombre fabric. I sketched the shape in pencil on the top fabric and layered different batik fabrics beneath it. After creating channels by machine quilting, I cut through the top fabric into the layers of the material below showing various colors at different areas of the butterfly. I also put a thin piece of sheer fabric in some places to give the iridescence of a butterfly wing. A quick swish in the washer and dryer ruffled the edges to reveal the colors below.
