Renee's Grandmother's Flower Crazy Patch

This is Renee's first large quilt. She put alot of time into it. Each seam of the crazy patch is machine embroidered, and she's thinking about embellishing the butterflies with beads or crystals. She's done a wonderful job sewing the quilt together. I did quilt over the crazy patch with a medallion pattern in monofilament thread. It did not diminish the patchwork at all. I finished it off with a feather plume in the 1/2 square triangles on the sides of the quilt.
The flower patches, and the butterflies were outlined with a gold thread, then I did freehand quilting in the backgroud with black just to show shadows. She loved it!
