Scherenschnitte - Part 3

With everything secured to the background the free motion quilting could start.  I decided to stitch feathers and echo these with a mother of pearl thread.  I uses the applique shapes as the spine of the feathers and created the plumes around these.

Here 2 of the 3 colorful butterflies can be seen up close.

Finally done with just the binding to do.

I finished the project up to the point where I could take it along to our Saturday group meeting to sit there and do the back of the binding by hand.  Now I know taste differs and I don't expect everyone to like this but heck you have to give me credit for the binding with black to match the black applique shape and white to match the white background.  And with that I am ready for the fourth term's challenge.
