Friday Finish Week #28

Earlier in the month, Casey Puetz lectured at  the Oconomowoc Quilt Guild on Reverse Applique.

This is my attempt.  :)  The circle part of the sun is the reverse applique.  just saying...

I was complaining that I thought my *sun* looked more like a *moon* so I added some rays with raggy edge applique~still my favorite.  I added some thread rays using one of the fancy stitches on Baby and zig zag-ed the butterflies on.  I did tack the bigger butterflies so they are *flying* and not *flopping*.  lol

I also fused fabric to the back of the butterflies for a more finished look.

Today I am going to link up with:
