So this is my first posted project. It is about 4' by 5', machine-pieced and hand-quilted.
This quilt is all about the fabrics! Most of them I collected from when I worked at a fabric shop that sold silk, cotton, and linen including many hand-dyed pieces. The bits with butterflies and dragonflies are hand-dyed linens, some of which I re-embroidered for contrast. There are also pieces of silk dupioni, silk/rayon brocade, silk/rayon velvet, and cotton batik, among others. The two borders and the back are all cotton batik and the binding is cotton too. I hand-quilted the whole thing with purple thread and I went around the inside of each shape, and filled in some of the larger shapes with extra quilting. I also embellished some of the shapes with embroidery.
Unfortunately it came out a little crooked but oh well. Now I just hope I have a baby girl at some point. Thanks for looking and comments are appreciated.

I satin-stitch embroidered on top of the butterfly that was already there.
I modified a leaf picture from a quilting book I have and embroidered it on this hand-dyed silk/linen fabric.
