Race to the finish

Since the movers arrive on Monday and my longarm machine will soon be readied for our move I have been hurrying to finish my "Butterflies are Free" quilt. I am hoping to hang this one in my new home to set the decorating tone of our main living space so I really want it finished. In spare moments I was able to finish the appliqué on Monday and then assembled it yesterday. It is now on the machine being quilted and I am just taking a little break to post these photos.

I laid it out on my sofa with a piece of fabric that I am considering for reupholstering my sofa. Final decisions won't be made until we are in our new home but I am leaning towards this aqua color instead of repeating the green like I originally planned. Hmmm, I think maybe it is time for a change and it still looks good with the butterflies and would look nice with the green,black and white that I was already considering. Looking forward to some decorating fun!

That quilt is such a beauty! It's fun to hear you plan your decor around it. An aqua sofa sounds wonderful. Have fun with the quilting, I'm looking forward to see what quilting pattern you've used.
