Butterflies and Vines

I finished this quilt today, and am so very pleased about it, having
started it over 2 years ago. :) I gave it to Mum, because she loves butterflies. This is the first free-motion quilting I've done, and I'm not doing too badly with it, really. More practice will improve me I'm sure.

I hid the occasional heart in the quilting, but mostly it was leaves throughout. Plus a "for Mum" and "love hope".

I love the back fabric :
